Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1357) Authentication failure after updating password in user document
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2011 12:04:40 GMT


Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-1357:

Pete, I'm not sure this issue relates directly yo your issue.
>From the error {error,system_limit, it seems your system reached the maximum limit of
available file descriptors. I have no idea how to increase this limit on Windows, perhaps
Dave can help here.
> Authentication failure after updating password in user document

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.1

> From the report at the users mailing list:
> Seems like after updating the password in a user doc, the user is not able to login with
the new password unless Couch is restarted. Sounds like a caching issue.
> The only case of getting the cache consistent with the _users database content is if
the _users database processes crash and after the crash user documents are updated. The cache
daemon is ignoring the database crash.
> The following patch updates the daemon to monitor the _users database and crash (letting
the supervisor restart it) if the database process crashes.
> Etap test included.
> This might be related to COUCHDB-1212.
