»Constraints and Known Issues
Our goal is to make HCP Consul function as similar to our self managed offerings as possible, but there are some constraints or issues that may cause HCP Consul to operate slightly differently. This is for documenting those known items.
monitor command is used to connect and follow the logs of a running Consul agent.
The monitor command is not supported on the HCP Consul because server agents are managed by HashiCorp SREs
for uptime and health purposes.
»Recovering Deleted Clusters
When you delete a HCP Consul cluster, the snapshots associated with the cluster are also removed and therefore the cluster cannot be recovered. Please take a snapshot using the snapshot API prior to deleting the cluster if you intend to restore a new cluster from this snapshot. Please note that the new cluster’s name must match the name of the deleted cluster in order to restore from this snapshot.
»Enterprise Compatibility with 1.11.x Consul Servers
If you run a HCP Consul server using versions 1.11.0+, you will not be able to connect Consul clients running versions 1.10.0-1.10.5 enterprise.
We recommend you use version 1.10.6 or later to connect clients with HCP Consul servers running versions 1.11.0 and above.
Please, refer to the Consul release changelog for more information on Consul bug fixes and known issues.
