Description Jan Hutař 2014-06-10 11:34:33 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no normal way to get VNC password for guests being provisioned on libvirt compute resource

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup Satellite 6 to the state you can provision guests on local
   libvirt compute resource
2. Provision some guest using network install
3. Attempt to access console of the guest via virt-manager on the host
   which is provisioning the guest

Actual results:
You are asked for password and I have not found way to obtain the password from webUI

Expected results:
Password should be either configurable or accessible via webUI

Additional info:
You can find password in:

  Ifrastructure -> Compute Resources -> <libvirt_compute_resource> ->
  -> Virtual Machines -> <your_machine> -> [Console]

now display HTML source of the page and find "data-password"

"Password " shows up, but you can't expand it to view it - see screenshot.

This has been copied to an issue upstream. When the upstream issue is fixed, the next version of satellite will contain it. We will no longer track this downstream.
