Description Jiří Mikulka 2014-08-04 06:54:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Unexpected symbols in any of the fields on Provisioning -> Power Management page leads to an ISE and traceback in catalina.out.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
spacewalk-backend-2.2.43-1.el6.noarch (Satellite 5.7/Spacewalk 2.2)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. prepare Satellite 5.7 with power management support enabled (fence-agents installed)
2. register client to the Satellite, add provisioning entitlement
3. fill in the values in <system> -> Provisioning -> Power management
4. put some unexpected symbols (like ;) into any of the fields -> ISE
   * e.g. System identifier: '-P ; echo "sth"'
