Last modified: 2012-12-06 04:06:43 EST
Description of problem:
if vnc uri contains right password, when use remote-viewer to connect guest,should not open input password dialog,if the password wrong,then open it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1:prepare a vnc guest with password
2:check the vnc uri
#virsh domdisplay rhel6.4 --include-password
3: use the uri to connect guest
Authentication dialog pop up
the password is correctly, so should not pop up the dialog
spice worked well
We explicitly refuse to support passwords in the URIs in virt-viewer - the fact that it works for SPICE is pure luck. This is very insecure and as a result we will not recommend or document its use.
