Subject [GitHub] cloudstack issue #1965: CLOUDSTACK-9727 Password reset discrepancy in RVR wh...
Date Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:42:25 GMT
Github user bvbharatk commented on the issue:
    We are saving the password in the user_vm_details explicitly. We are not checking if ssh
key pair is set for this vm or not.
    I agree that ideally we should sync the password between the master and backup, For any
kind of sync to work we need to know if the password was read from one of the VRs and In cases
when one of the Vr is Stopped we will have to clear the password from db when it is read from
the other one. These type of changes add complexity to the simple task of setting a password.
The next best thing is to make sure we save the same password in both the routers. This will
fix will at least solve the problem of sending the correct password even if the master and
backup change state before the VM starts. 
    Yes like you pointed out this will lead to the problem that the user might receive the
old password when he stop starts the VM, In this case the user will get a notification in
the UI that his password will be changed.  So he at least knows what the password is and so
he can log into the VM.
