libvirtd's log with log_level=1

Description of problem:
  virt-top fail to connect through tcp connection with sasl authentication

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Edit /etc/sysconfig/libvirtd uncomment LIBVIRTD_ARGS

2.Edit  /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf
listen_tcp =1
auth_tcp = "sasl"

3.Add a user named "fred", and setting his password as "redhat"
# saslpasswd2 -a libvirt fred
Password: xxxxxx
Again (for verification): xxxxxx

4. #service libvirtd restart

5. #service iptables stop

6. virsh -c qemu+tcp://$ip/system

7. virt-top -c qemu+tcp://$ip/system --debug /tmp/virt-top-debug

Actual results:
1. Step 6 works well
2. Step 7 fails with following error:
libvir: RPC error : authentication failed: Failed to start SASL negotiation: -4 (SASL(-4): no mechanism available: No worthy mechs found)
libvirt: VIR_ERR_AUTH_FAILED: VIR_FROM_RPC: authentication failed: Failed to start SASL negotiation: -4 (SASL(-4): no mechanism available: No worthy mechs found)

Expected results:
1. virt-top could work well.

Additional info:
1. After step 7, debug file wasn't created, so I cannot provide it. Only attach the libvirtd's log

To Dan:

Does SASL authentication need a connection call other than

If so then we'll need to duplicate this bug for ocaml-libvirt
and add that package to the Approved Components List.

Yes, you need to use virConnectOpenAuth() and provide an authentication callback to collect credentials. In the case of virt-top, since it is a CLI app, you can just pass "virConnectAuthDefault" to OpenAuth. For the OCaml API in general, you'd need to allow user specified callbacks.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 20:32:29 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Not on ACL, low priority, so closing.
