Ticket #442 (closed defect: fixed)

Client resolution should be case-insensitive

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.4 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version: 0.9.x
Keywords: Cc:


Through no fault of our own, our FQDNs are in the format "foo.WSG.McGill?.CA". If I specify "" (lowercase), bcfg2-server does not recognize the requesting host with the following error:

Failed to download probes from bcfg2
Client metadata resolution error for xx.xx.xx.xx

Since domain names are case-insensitive, the server should ignore the case when matching the hosts to the clients list.

Resolved in [df43f23d4333a7b15988bb0c7aaa8493df6804b5] (SVN r3200). We now canonicalize client names internally to a lowercase format. Now == == fOO.cOM. This will be included in 0.9.4pre2.
