Description Leonid Natapov 2013-10-31 06:40:43 EDT
It seems that the subject of certificate is changed using the output of a query to the certificate on first host. It's created with: OVEHOSTED_VDSM/spicePkiSubject=str:'/C=EN/L=Test/O=Test/CN=Test' 

and then updated to 
ENV OVEHOSTED_VDSM/spicePkiSubject=unicode:'O=Test, CN='

User gets the following error:
[ ERROR ] Failed to execute stage 'Misc configuration': Command '/usr/bin/openssl' failed to execute

Here is the setup log file output.

2013-10-31 11:47:28 DEBUG otopi.plugins.ovirt_hosted_engine_setup.pki.vdsmpki plugin.execute:446 execute-output: ('/usr/bin/openssl', 'req', '-new', '-x509', '-days', '1095', '-key', '/tmp/tmpgkQD_
9/ca-key.pem', '-out', '/tmp/tmpgkQD_9/ca-cert.pem', '-subj', 'O=Test, CN=') stderr:
Subject does not start with '/'.

Comment 1 Sandro Bonazzola 2013-10-31 07:30:56 EDT
this bug can be seen only on second host when using SPICE as console, it doesn't affect setup using VNC.
Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2013-11-04 09:01:41 EST

hosted engine is a new package, does not need errata for specific bugs during its development.
