Key store passwords are not loaded from rhq-server.properties file in RHQ advanced configuration installer page
Last modified: 2012-10-26 13:50:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing server with SSL enabled, the keystore and trusstore passwords are not loaded from rhq-server.properties and are instead left blank.
This affects the following configuration properties and their respective input field in the installer:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run RHQ installer
2. Click on the link that says *Advanced* at the top of the page
3. Notice that the keystore and truststore passwords are empty
If sslsocket is used, the server fails to start due to an invalid keystore password being used with the default keystore.
Passwords should be present or at least loaded from rhq-server.properties during installation so the server properly starts when sslsocket is used.
This appears to be very similar to the issue that affects the database password at the top of the install page. Any field of type password seems to be affected. This does not affect the tomcat/servlet password properties because these fields appear to be plain text fields.
