[RFE] indefinite attempts to use bad credentials
Last modified: 2010-10-20 07:32:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Any of wallaby tools from package 'wallaby-utils' needs correct user login and password. Problem is when the bad credentials are used. The tool tries to use them indefinitely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run wallaby-inventory with bad credentials
The tool attempts to use the bad credentials indefinitely
The tool repeat the same message over and over again
'warning Broker closed connection: 320, connection-forced: Authentication failed'
After three or defined number of attempts the tool stops running
There is a workaround for this issue in 0.9.6; the tools will time out after 15 seconds if they cannot connect to a broker.
Tested with (version):
RHEL5 i386,x86_64 - passed
