password with '&' does not works
Last modified: 2013-09-17 10:18:53 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):
# echo 'ricci:aAa' | chpasswd
# rm -rf ~/.ccs
# ccs -h localhost -p 'aAa' --getversion
email@example.com ~ # echo 'ricci:a&a' | chpasswd
firstname.lastname@example.org ~ # rm -rf ~/.ccs
email@example.com ~ # ccs -h localhost -p 'aAa' --getversion
Unable to authenticate with ricci node, please check password.
(wrong password, the password was changed, expected result)
firstname.lastname@example.org ~ # time ccs -h localhost -p 'a&a' --getversion
Error: no ricci tag in ricci response
(the right password, BUG!)
