Improve error messages for missing clients

Reported by: naapuri Owned by: desai
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: bcfg2-server Version:
Keywords: Cc:


If an unknown client is contacting the bcfg2 server, the client says:

Operation GetProbes completed with fault
Failed to download probes from bcfg2

This error should at least include something like "See the server error log for details.".

The server currently says:

Cannot set group for client myclient; no default group set
metadata consistency error

Is this really a "metadata consistency error"? I'd suggest: "Refusing connection from an unknown client 'myclient'. (No <Client> element defined for 'myclient' and no default group set.)" (Is this accurate? What about public='true' groups?)

If there is no DNS information for the client, the message is a bit more obscure:

address resolution error for
metadata consistency error
