Bug 1072406 - ovirt-engine-dwh-setup does not handle escape characters in the 10-setup-database.conf ENGINE_DB_PASSWORD
Summary: ovirt-engine-dwh-setup does not handle escape characters in the 10-setup-data...
Alias: None

Fixed In Version: is35 - rhevm-dwh-3.3.2-1.el6ev.noarch.rpm
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, when the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager was configured using a password that contained special characters, those special characters would be escaped when stored in the 10-setup-database.conf file. However, the rhevm-dwh-setup command would not recognize such characters as being escaped and would therefore fail to run. Now, escaped characters are correctly interpreted.

Comment 4 Jiri Belka 2014-03-21 12:39:22 UTC
I did not understand correctly the problem. It is not about password for rhevm-dwh-setup but about loading engine password from file.

Comment 5 Jiri Belka 2014-03-21 12:42:14 UTC
ok, rhevm-dwh-3.3.2-1.el6ev.noarch

rhevm-dwh-setup passed while engine uses '123$576' password.

# grep ENGINE_DB_PASS /etc/ovirt-engine/engine.conf.d/10-setup-database.conf
