Improve handling of obfuscated passwords for installation
Last modified: 2014-04-23 08:30:16 EDT
There are three rhq-server.properties requiring obfuscated passwords:
The values for these properties must currently be generated by executing:
rhq-installer.sh|bat --encodepassword <plainTextPassword>
There are two problems with this:
1) The <plainTextPassword> should be prompted for as opposed to being a
supplied on the command line.
Currently the PTP will be held in command prompt history.
2) Running this utility is not always convenient, and should be optional.
If the obfuscated password values are not set in rhq-server.properties
then they should be prompted for by the installer. This will allow
several ways for the user to proceed with install.
Note that we must always allow for silent installation.
Bulk closing of 4.10 issues.
If an issue is not solved for you, please open a new BZ (or clone the existing one) with a version designator of 4.10.
