On September 5, 2017 we released CloudStack-UI version 1.49.9. This release is a bugfix release. The key change in the release is the modification of the version naming scheme, which was aligned with the Apache Cloudstack versions releases. Thus, in version 1.49.9, the value of the numbers is:
- “1” - responsible for the concept of the interface that is currently used;
- “49” - responsible for compatibility with ACS, currently 4.9;
- “9” - the current version of the CloudStack-UI product.
In the future, with the increase of releases lifetime, the fourth number may appear. It will mean the minor version, and will be designed to reflect changes related to bug fixes within the current version of the product.

Unfortunately, the problem occurs from time to time in every ACS version and last time we met it in ACS 4.9.2. Administrator must remove them somehow from ACS. The article provides the step-by-step guide how to address the problem.
