Doc Text:
Cause: virt-viewer tried to load the cert-file based on "ca-file" property, even when launched with a .vv file. Consequence: An additional cert-file was being loaded wrongly. Fix: Set the "ca-file" property to NULL when lauching virt-viewer with a .vv file. Result: virt-viewer will use only the cert-file provided by the .vv file.

Description David Jaša 2014-08-07 13:52:34 UTC
Description of problem:
when launched with .vv file, spice-gtk should get temporary CA certificate only and only from .vv file, not from legacy temporary file of ~/.spicec/truststore.pm

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open connection to tls-enabled VM using .vv file with debug output

Actual results:
spice-gtk says among others:
(remote-viewer:5980): GSpice-DEBUG: spice-session.c:1708 connect ready
(remote-viewer:5980): GSpice-DEBUG: spice-channel.c:2187 main-1:0: Load CA, file: /home/brq/djasa/.spicec/spice_truststore.pem, data: 0x2657800

(remote-viewer:5980): GSpice-WARNING **: loading ca certs from /home/brq/djasa/.spicec/spice_truststore.pem failed

1. Prepare a spice guest on rhevm and download the .vv file
# remote-viewer console.vv --debug --spice-debug 
(remote-viewer:15755): GSpice-WARNING **: loading ca certs from /root/.spicec/spice_truststore.pem failed

VERIFY with virt-viewer-0.6.0-7.el7.x86_64
No log for touch CA in local dir.
(remote-viewer:16088): GSpice-DEBUG: spice-channel.c:2187 display-2:0: Load CA, file: (null), data: 0xe5ed70

As the result, set VERIFIED.
