uuid-based configs don't work on bcfg server itself

Reported by: Owned by: desai
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.2.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


Using 1.2.0rc2, I created two clients: one that is my bcfg server, and another with a uuid specified:

  <Client name="" profile="rrz1-master"/>
  <Client name="computeimage" profile="rrz-compute" uuid="computeimage"/>

and ran the client on two different machines both with and without the '-u' option:

  bcfg2 -q -v -n
  bcfg2 -q -v -n -u computeimage

When run on the machine that is also running the bcfg server, both cases result in the real machine's config (as if I hadn't run with '-u' either time). But when run on an independent client, adding the '-u' works as I would expect - the client gets the config associated with the 'computeimage' config.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

The only way to do this is to use a separate bcfg2.conf which doesn't contain the key and certificate entries and point to it with the -C option. Using SSL authentication overrides everything when determining client identity.
