client log "Cannot verify incomplete ConfigFile" is misleading

Reported by: barth Owned by: desai
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.0.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


when the server fails to bind an entry for some reason, the client generates a message that is misleading. For instance:

Cannot verify incomplete ConfigFile /etc/postfix/

or, worst:

Incomplete information for entry ConfigFile:/Cfg/etc/logcheck/ignore.d.paranoid/plextor-smartctrl; cannot verify
        ... due to absence of owner:group:perms attribute(s)

Note that:

  • in the first case, the problem was an error in TGenshi/.../template.txt (thus TGenshin plugin returning an error, nothing was "incomplete")
  • in the second case, there was simply no entry (nothing to do with permissions)
  • in both cases, logs on the server side were good

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

This is fixed with the new failed entry annotation that we've added. A reason for the failure (if a server side issue is to blame) is now reported, in addition to the information that we previously reported.
