    • Cloud Mapping per Instance report displays “unsupported operand type” error message when Unravel is unable to map the host to any VM instance. (REPORT-729)

    • Unlike the Cluster Discovery report the Cloud Mapping per Host report displays the cluster ID. (REPORT-698)

    • Cloud Mapping per Host report for Azure HDI and Azure (IaaS) cloud providers Unravel displays on-prem storage as total storage value and not the actual storage made available by Azure Managed Disks when Storage Type chosen is ‘Local Attached Storage’. (REPORT-728)

    • Cloud Product/Service name displayed in the reports for Cloud Mapping per Host and Cloud Mapping per Instance are not the complete names of the Cloud Product/Service provider. (REPORT-567)

    • Object storage pricing is typically tiered, but is not taken into account while calculating the storage costs. (REPORT-596)

    • Unravel assumes one on-prem core is equivalent to one cloud vCPU and finds the best possible match without taking into account any performance differences. (CUSTOMER-926)

The exact reason for this bug is yet to be ascertained.


      1. Open and edit of the client where unravel is running.

      2. Add a line similar to export “HDP_VERSION=". Make sure to put the proper hdp version in the line.
