Expected results:
No Error

Additional info:

The problem is caused by /etc/pki/rhevm/encryptpasswd.sh on the rhevm server.

Lines 32 and 34 should have $1 wrapped as "$1" which tells the shell to ignore spaces in arg.
Comment 1 Amador Pahim 2012-08-08 17:21:16 EDT
Same issue here. Not fixed yet in upstream.
Patch sent: http://gerrit.ovirt.org/7024
Comment 2 Miki Kenneth 2012-08-09 03:44:44 EDT
No need to support white spaces in the password. Let's verify that and give a proper error message (and of course let the User pick another password).
Comment 3 Kiril Nesenko 2012-08-09 03:46:00 EDT
Patch posted for review: http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/7033/
Comment 5 Ilanit Stein 2012-09-02 03:51:17 EDT
Verified on SI16.
Error is indeed givern "Error: White spaces are not allowed in passwords"

Welcome to RHEV Manager setup utility

In order to proceed the installer must stop the JBoss service
Would you like to stop the JBoss service? (yes|no): yes
Stopping JBoss... RHEV Manager uses httpd to proxy requests to the application server.
It looks like the httpd installed locally is being actively used.
The installer can override current configuration .
Alternatively you can use JBoss directly (on ports higher than 1024)
Do you wish to override current httpd configuration and restart the service? ['yes'| 'no']  [yes] : yes
HTTP Port  [80] : 
HTTPS Port  [443] : 
Host fully qualified domain name. Note: this name should be fully resolvable  [lilach-rhel.qa.lab.tlv.redhat.com] : 
Password for Administrator (admin@internal) :
Error: White spaces are not allowed in passwords
Password for Administrator (admin@internal) :

Password for Administrator (admin@internal) :
Warning: Weak Password.
Confirm password :
Organization Name for the Certificate  [qa.lab.tlv.redhat.com] : 
The default storage type you will be using  ['NFS'| 'FC'| 'ISCSI']  [NFS] : 
Enter DB type for installation ['remote'| 'local']  [local] :

Confirm password :
Configure NFS share on this server to be used as an ISO Domain? ['yes'| 'no']  [yes] : no
Firewall ports need to be opened.
The installer can configure iptables automatically overriding the current configuration. The old configuration will be backed up.
Alternately you can configure the firewall later using an example iptables file found under /etc/ovirt-engine/iptables.example
Configure iptables ? ['yes'| 'no']: yes

RHEV Manager will be installed using the following configuration:
override-httpd-config:         yes
http-port:                     80
https-port:                    443

config-nfs:                    no
override-iptables:             yes
Proceed with the configuration listed above? (yes|no): yes
