Bug Description

ii maas 0.1+bzr473+dfsg-0ubuntu1~ppa2 Ubuntu MAAS Server
ii maas-provision 2.2.2-0ubuntu1~ppa4 Install server
ii maas-provision-common 2.2.2-0ubuntu1~ppa4 Cobbler Install server - common files

Using MAAS from the testing PPA.

Since deployment of maas-provision I had been unable to maas-import-isos, 'sudo cobbler list', or add a node, with these operations returning 'login failed':

xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 1: "<class 'cobbler.cexceptions.CX'>:'login failed'">
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/cobbler", line 35, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/cobbler/", line 543, in main
    rc =

    self.token = self.remote.login("", self.shared_secret)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1224, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1578, in __request
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1264, in request
    return self.single_request(host, handler, request_body, verbose)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1297, in single_request
    return self.parse_response(response)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 1473, in parse_response
    return u.close()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 793, in close
    raise Fault(**self._stack[0])
xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 1: "<class 'cobbler.cexceptions.CX'>:'login failed'">

After a *lot* of trial and failure, I eventually quoted the password for Cobbler in /etc/maas/pserv.yaml. After restarting the services, all was well.

I am not sure this happens all the times; I understand Diogo reinstalled without issues on the QA lab.

The failure is not really caused because of this. However, that particular issue has already been fixced and was due to the migration to maas-provision

This bug was fixed in the package maas - 0.1+bzr482+dfsg-0ubuntu1

maas (0.1+bzr482+dfsg-0ubuntu1) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * New upstream release (Fixes LP: #981103)
  * debian/maas.postinst:
    - Make sure rabbitmq and postgresql are started on upgrade (LP: #981282)
    - Handle upgrades from any lower than 0.1+bzr462+dfsg-0ubuntu1 to
      correctly re-generate passwords, and not have db sync/migrate issues
      as config has changed upstream.
    - Correctly set Passwords for PSERV, otherwise it won't set new passwords.
  * Allow MAAS_DEFAULT_URL reconfiguration. (LP: #980970)
    - debian/maas.config: Add reconfigure validation to correctly allow it,
      and ask a question.
    - debian/maas.postinst: Reconfigure DEFAULT_MAAS_URL as well as cobbler
      server and next_server for PXE/Provisioning.
    - debian/maas.templates: Add debconf question and update info.
  * Do not lose MAAS_DEFAULT_URL settings on upgrade (LP: #984309)
  * debian/maas.postinst:
    - Set cobbler password in between quotes (LP: #984427)
    - Do not change permissions to maas.log (LP: #980915)
  * no longer use maas-cloudimg2ephemeral, but rather use premade images
