Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 840080
ovirt-config-password can not be used to set admin password
Last modified: 2016-04-26 16:18:16 EDT
Description of problem:
o-c-password fails with a "token manipulation error" if it's used to set the admin password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
A recent F17 build
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F17 using auto install (don't know yet if ai is relevant)
2. Login and drop to shell
3. run /usr/libexec/ovirt-config-password
Password can not be set because passwd fails with "token manipulation error"
Password can be set
It seems that passwd changed, strace reveals that it tries to rename /etc/nshadow to /etc/shadow, this fails on our (ro) setup
The ovirtnode.password py-module is not affected and can be used to change the password (so TUI is not affected)
Tests are pending.
patch was merged in July, works in current release
