Description Martin Lazar 2013-07-24 02:46:44 EDT
Description of problem:
If the password for ricci user contains the ampersand character, the ccs utility does not works.

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

How reproducible:
# echo 'ricci:aAa' | chpasswd
# rm -rf ~/.ccs
# ccs -h localhost -p 'aAa' --getversion
(it works)

root@app2.du2 ~ # echo 'ricci:a&a' | chpasswd
root@app2.du2 ~ # rm -rf ~/.ccs
root@app2.du2 ~ # ccs -h localhost -p 'aAa' --getversion
Unable to authenticate with ricci node, please check password.
(wrong password, the password was changed, expected result)

root@app2.du2 ~ # time ccs -h localhost -p 'a&a' --getversion
Error: no ricci tag in ricci response
real	2m0.302s
(the right password, BUG!)

Duplicate of [bug 855117] (and possibly also [bug 855121]).
Also see [1] (just FYI, thread start is at [2], not easy to find due
to split across the months in the mailman archives).
