Bug Description

When we use pre-registered tenant to perform the tests, the tenant account load process will call the below function:
In: tempest.common.preprov_creds.PreProvisionedCredentialProvider:_get_creds

def _get_creds(self, roles=None):
        if self.use_default_creds:
            raise exceptions.InvalidConfiguration(
                "Account file %s doesn't exist" % CONF.auth.test_accounts_file)
        useable_hashes = self._get_match_hash_list(roles)
        free_hash = self._get_free_hash(useable_hashes) # here we create the hash file of the tenant file
        clean_creds = self._sanitize_creds(
            self.hash_dict['creds'][free_hash])'%s allocated creds:\n%s' % (, clean_creds))
        return self._wrap_creds_with_network(free_hash) # if any error happens here, the outer layer function’s self._creds variable will be an empty list, and in
                                                                                                          # the subsequent cleanup process, the value of self._creds will be checked, if it is empty, the hash file
                                                                                                          # of this tenant won’t be cleaned.

I actually ran into a sub-issue to this ( where I needed to add extra exception handling to _wrap_creds_with_network. Do you have a specific scenario that was triggering an exception in the _wrap_creds_with_network?

I ran out of the problem too, and I ran out of the problem of getting the token failure because of the network problem.

Daryl are you still working on a fix for this?
