Comment 19 Xueqiang Wei 2016-09-06 10:01:33 UTC
for crypted is false, the test is passed.
for crypted is true, the test is failed, return message "Unsupported".

the details as below:
host: kernel-3.10.0-500.el7.x86_64
guest: win10

some logs:

set password: redhat

{"return": {}}

then reboot guest, login using the new password successfully

{"error": {"desc": "{ 'class': 'Unsupported', 'data': {} }"}}
