Description Mike Burns 2012-04-20 12:08:00 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):

How reproducible:

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)
3.reboot again
Actual results:
login with password2 fails
login with password1 succeeds but requires another password change

Expected results:
login with password2 is successful

Additional info:
Regression due to changes for adding libvirt-cim support
Comment 1 Mike Burns 2012-04-20 12:15:35 EDT
Workaround -- 

autoinstall using adminpw
login and change password
once on the TUI, change password again through the security tab.
Comment 2 Mike Burns 2012-04-20 12:21:51 EDT


install rhevh with adminpw=<hashed1>
after reboot, login as admin and change to password2 when forced to change
login as admin using password2
Comment 4 Guohua Ouyang 2012-04-28 01:18:17 EDT
verified with rhevh-6.3-20120426.2:
1. auto install with adminpw
2. login can change the password.
3. reboot 
4. login with the changed password successfully
Comment 5 Stephen Gordon 2012-06-13 15:44:25 EDT
Was this ever in a release version (read: is a technical note required)?
Comment 6 Mike Burns 2012-06-13 15:58:02 EDT
code existed in previous versions, but bug was never noticed previously.  It was a racy issue, so it might have existed, but never shown itself previously.
