xend doesn't start if xen-http-server is enabled
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem:
when you enable http-server in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp (change xend-http-server
to yes) xend does no longer start
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable xend-http-server
2. stop xend
3. start xend
the start command never comes back
star should come back and web interafce should be available
The 'xen-http-server' option opens a TCP port on all network interfaces and
performs no authentication on incoming connections. This allows anyone on the
network to create/stop/manage guest domainson the hsot in question. This
obviously a huge security hole - on a par with running telnet server with no
password - thus disabled by default in the XenD config, and denied by the
SELinux policy even if the XenD config is turned on.
i can set ip table ruls to block not wanted connections, but selinux is disabled
in my environement and xend doesn't start either as soon as i change this
parameter in xenconfig. so this is still a bug .
Ok, can you upload the XenD server/startup logs
And also check to see if any other process is listening on the XenD port (8000),
with something like:
netstat -t -a -n -p | grep LISTEN | grep 8000
ok, got the problem, i have the nasd - Network Audio System server installed who
is listening on port 8000, after changing the port to 8080 it works now.
the default port for xen should be moved to another free availlable if this
service will be anabled in the future. i close the bug ..
