Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814778
password change after setting password with adminpw is not persisted
Last modified: 2016-04-26 11:20:28 EDT
Description of problem:
when installing rhevh using adminpw=<encrypted passwd>, you're prompted to reset the password on first login. The new password should be persisted. It's currently not persisted resulting in a need to change every reboot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install rhevh using autoinstall and adminpw=<hashed_password> (e.g. password1)
2.on next reboot, login as admin, reset password (e.g. password2)
login with password2 fails
login with password1 succeeds but requires another password change
login with password2 is successful
Regression due to changes for adding libvirt-cim support
autoinstall using adminpw
login and change password
once on the TUI, change password again through the security tab.
install rhevh with adminpw=<hashed1>
after reboot, login as admin and change to password2 when forced to change
login as admin using password2
verified with rhevh-6.3-20120426.2:
1. auto install with adminpw
2. login can change the password.
4. login with the changed password successfully
