oVirt gerrit 39823 master MERGED Move passwd (set saslpassword for libvirt) to vdsm-tool Never

Description Yaniv Bronhaim 2014-12-01 11:40:50 UTC
Description of problem:
To fix Bug #1168689 for 3.5 we moved the set-saslpasswd call to pre-start scripts. To not run it on each start, this should be moved to configurator as part of vdsm configuration for external services.

Comment 2 Yaniv Bronhaim 2015-06-16 07:56:38 UTC
"vdsm-tool configure --module passwd" - Is now the command that set the password required for vdsm to communicate with libvirt (for user ovirt@vdsm in virsh. same in rhevm) - vdsm won't run it during installation time but require manual or host-deploy to run the vdsm-tool configure command for that

vdsm-tool remove-config --module passwd - you can remove the user configuration (vdsm does calls vdsm-tool remove-config during uninstall, means that the user should not exist after vdsm removal).

With the command "sasldblistuser2 -f /etc/libvirt/passwd.db" - you check that user vdsm@ovirt exists and configured and you can also try using virsh to check that the user is configured properly . the removal is also important.

Comment 3 Petr Kubica 2015-06-22 16:33:32 UTC
If I understand it correctly, it should be the password for user vdsm@ovirt the same as password for admin@internal in rhevm after "vdsm-tool configure --module passwd" ?

Comment 4 Yaniv Bronhaim 2015-06-23 14:14:08 UTC
no. its the password and username you use to connect to libvirt - use "virsh list", it will prompt for authentication
