Description Seiji Aguchi 2010-06-24 11:33:02 UTC
Description of problem:

  Can't add new power_type through beaker web site.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

  beaker-0.5.42-2.
  beaker-server-0.5.42-2.
  beaker-client-0.5.42-2.
  beaker-labcontroller-0.5.42-2.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.
  Admin -> power type -> Add(+) -> Click "submit data" without specifying "name".

    Then, I got the following:
    500 Internal error

2.
  After that, I retried to submit new power type as follows.
   Admin -> power type 

  However, I got "500 Internal error" again.

Actual results:

  See "Steps to Reproduce".


Expected results:

  Beaker should accept new power_type in step2.


Additional info:

  Contents of power_type tables just after step1 were the following.

  mysql> select * from power_type;
  +----+-------------+
  | id | name        |
  +----+-------------+
  |  1 | apc_snmp    |
  |  2 | bladecenter |
  |  3 | bladepap    |
  |  4 | drac        |
  |  5 | ether_wake  |
  |  6 | ilo         |
  |  7 | integrity   |
  |  8 | ipmilan     |
  |  9 | ipmitool    |
  | 10 | lpar        |
  | 11 | rsa         |
  | 12 | virsh       |
  | 13 | wti         |
  | 14 |             |
  +----+-------------+
  14 rows in set (0.00 sec)

  I guess id=14 ,the tuple which "name" entry is NULL, causes internal error.

  Users need to modify mysql table directly to recover from internal error.
  It seems user-unfriendly.

  So I think beaker shouldn't add the tuple which "name" entry is NULL 
  to the power_type table, 

  /var/log/beaker/server.log is following.
  I hope this helps.
