Description of problem:
The error message that the wallaby utilities display when they fail to connect to the wallaby agent is generally unhelpful.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
QMF method calls will fail because the variable that should have a store object is nil, giving an "undefined method for nil:NilClass" error.
It would be more helpful for the tools to fail with a meaningful error message in this case.
This is fixed in 0.9.0.
# service wallaby stop
# wallaby inventory
Console Connection Established...
fatal: cannot find a wallaby agent on the specified broker (localhost:5672); is one running?
use -h for help
Tested with (version):
RHEL5 i386,x86_64 - passed
