Description Dan Callaghan 2013-06-25 19:27:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The beaker-expire-distros cron job in my devel environment fired shortly after the machine was powered on (after a full shutdown for a power outage). It got this exception from the local beaker-proxy at 2013-06-24 10:01:02 +10:00:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/beaker-expire-distros", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('bkr.labcontroller==0.13.0', 'console_scripts', 'beaker-expire-distros')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/expire_distros.py", line 105, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/expire_distros.py", line 66, in check_all_trees
    distro_trees = proxy.get_distro_trees()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1199, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1489, in __request
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1253, in request
    return self._parse_response(h.getfile(), sock)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1392, in _parse_response
    return u.close()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 838, in close
    raise Fault(**self._stack[0])
xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 1: "<class 'turbogears.identity.exceptions.IdentityFailure'>: Not member of group: lab_controller">

I saw this in beaker-proxy.log:

2013-06-24 10:01:01 [DEBUG   ] { 1711} bkr.labcontroller.main:37 Time: 0:00:00.517346 get_distro_trees ()
2013-06-24 10:03:26 [INFO    ] { 1711} kobo.client.HubProxy:207 Creating new session...
2013-06-24 10:03:29 [INFO    ] { 1711} kobo.client.HubProxy:225 New session created.

So it seems like beaker-proxy pid 1711 had started and was servicing requests a full two minutes before it attempted (or succeeded?) to authenticate to the Beaker server.

I'm using Kerberos authentication in this environment.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
not known, but my guess is:
1. reboot the lab controller
2. somehow try to ensure beaker-expire-distros runs immediately after bootup
