Description Corey Marthaler 2007-07-20 17:15:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Our wti is configured without a password, so to get around this in the
cluster.conf file I had been just using a space " " in the password parameter,
but conga won't let me do this.
Comment 1 Corey Marthaler 2007-08-01 15:33:58 EDT
Was this issue supposed to be marked 'modified'? This bug is still present in
Comment 2 Ryan McCabe 2007-08-01 15:54:55 EDT
Thanks for the catch. Somehow, half of the patch got reverted along with 
another commit. Reapplied and committed to CVS.
Comment 5 Corey Marthaler 2007-08-16 15:45:16 EDT
fix verified in ricci-0.10.0-4.el5/luci-0.10.0-4.el5
Comment 6 Corey Marthaler 2007-10-02 18:20:41 EDT
This issue appears to have regressed in 0.10.0-6.el5. 


The following errors occurred:

    * A password must be provided for this Fence Device

Comment 7 Ryan McCabe 2007-10-02 22:17:49 EDT
Somehow part of the fix got lost; the space as a password fix exists in 0.10.0-6
for APC and ipmilan, but not others. I've checked the fix for this into CVS.
Comment 10 Brian Brock 2008-05-14 20:52:09 EDT
fix verified in -7.el5, changing state to verified.

I can configure WTI fencing with an empty password, and Conga accepts it without
