Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-2792) Redundant router: Password is reset again after fail-over happened
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2013 23:06:21 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on CLOUDSTACK-2792:

Commit 5a8a2a259ea6e049b3e5810ff3a432d6ca7767e1 in branch refs/heads/master from [~yasker]
[;h=5a8a2a2 ]

CLOUDSTACK-2792: Send "saved_password" to BACKUP router when reset password for user VM

Otherwise when MASTER failed, the user VM would get password reset again after

But this fix still have issues if MASTER is failure before VM boot up, but in
that case, password of user VM won't change and user would request password
change again, then it would be fine.

> Consider this scenario with RVR and "Password protected" VM:
> ============================================================
> 1. Both Master and Backup is running.
> 2. We reset the password on VM
> 3. Both Master and Backup have password; for example say; "password1"
> 4. VM boots up and requests for password; receives it from Master VR
> 5. Master VR sets the password to Saved_Password and Backup VR continues to
> keep "password1"
> 6. Backup VR goes down; it had password as "password1"
> 7. Maste VR is running
> 8. We reset the password; so the password is only changed to Master VR (as
> Backup VR is down); for example "password2"
> 9. VM boots up and requests the password; gets it as "password2"
> 10. Master VR sets the password to be Saved_Password
> 11. Now Master VR goes down
> 12. Backup VR was brought online (it still has "password1")
> 13. Now we reboot the VM
> 14. It sends a password request
> 15. Backup VR (which is only available now; so is Master) sends the password as
> "password1"
> User tries to login as "password2" and he cannot; unless we reset the password
> again.
