Cu words 


I have gotten authentication to work on the command line, using:

# cat /etc/libvirt/auth.conf


But now another problem has appeared...

Satellite 6 seems to be implementing the OLD API.. "virConnectOpen".. and not the new "virConnectOpenAuth"... which is needed for authentication, as far as I understand from the libvirt developers...

If I set the credentials in /etc/libvirt/auth.conf and make attached change/hack to:


Basically forcing use of the open_auth method... then I can connect to XenServer....

Now i'm faced with a new error... in the "Virtual Machines" tab:

There was an error listing VMs: Call to virDomainAutostart failed: An error occurred, but the cause is unknown

Could be related to this older bug:

We do not have plans to support this in the near future, so I am closing this out. You are free to use the community plugin with your version of Satellite6 to achieve this goal. If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact myself or Todd Warner.
