Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 861233
Cannot log in to Conductor on IE8 or IE9
Last modified: 2012-10-11 14:44:29 EDT
Description of problem:
So this looks like a complete return to the issues logged here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=723333 ... symptoms are identical.
It appears that a user can't log in on IE8 (or IE9) but Conductor looks to be processing something when a user clicks the 'Login' button, but the screen view never progresses.
See the attached screenshots: For a 'false login' ie: a non-existant user, Conductor returns the correct message (first screenshot) but for the admin login (with correct password), the browser just stays on the login page (second screenshot)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
>> rpm -qa |grep aeolus
every time Dave or I tried on IE8 or IE9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install conductor
2. Access https://server/conductor from IE8 or IE9
3. Try to log in with a valid username and password
Nothing happens - the browser stays on the /login page
That the browser shows the 'Monitor' or other entry page within the Conductor app.
It appears that it worked to log in to Conductor on IE8 at some point - because Matt Wagner succeeded in logging other BZs that required him to get past log in. It was while trying to verify those logged BZs that stumbled across the log in issue again.

Browser stays on /login page
I have not been able to reproduce this behavior in IE8/9 either upstream or downstream. My settings in each browser are the default settings.
Please let me know if this is still reproducible.
Dave and I both tried a different conductor install - on IE8 and IE9. It's still reproducible AFAICT.
Type in the user name and password for the standard admin user, you see the IE downloading something (you see text and activity on the progress bar and the little circle turning) but the browser never progresses off the login screen and the fields for username and password are cleared.

Reproduced this bug
Ronelle and Dave, could you provide the version number of the IE8/9 that you're testing with?
IE8 Version: 8.0.6001.18702 (on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition)
IE9 Version: 9.0.8112.16421 (on Windows 7 x64)
I will be trying to reproduce the issue in Windows XP Professional standard (32 bit edition) tonight/tomorrow morning after downloading it. I've run into IE issues that were version dependent before and would like to verify if this is a similar situation. I will be attempting to reproduce this BZ with each Windows Update to IE8 until I'm running the latest version and I'll document the results here.
I tested Conductor on:
- Windows 7 Professional
- IE8 Version:8.0.7600.16385
I still have not been able to reproduce this to the point where I cannot log into Conductor (same OS, same browser version with varying amounts of patches). I've stepped through all of the updates on both Windows 7 and Windows XP and have been able to get the act of logging in to take nearly two minutes from when I click the login button though.
I've done that by letting a VM or two idle in the background and soak up nearly all of the resources on my machine. Then when I click the Login button the progress spinner goes, but the browser does not load anything until resources are freed up. I'm not sure if this could be be what is being reproduced on hardware that is much more taxed than my laptop.
8.0.6001.18702 (XP Professional x64)
8.0.7600.16385 (Windows 7, two IE8 updates)
8.0.7600.16385 (Windows 7, one IE8 update)
8.0.7600.16385 (Windows 7, no updates)
This one is crazy, not sure what is going on but somehow are test boxes seem screwed up. When I reinstalled a fresh windows 7 os, everything works as expected. We are continuing to feel out IE browser support but closing this for now as not a bug.... we have wasted enough time on it already.
