replaceafillhey th1a18:45
th1ahey replaceafill.18:46
th1aI am doing my penance for being too nice to dally.18:46
replaceafillchatting with him?18:46
th1aI told him two days ago not to mess with reinstalling but just to export/import the data from the other instance.18:47
*** khildin has quit IRC18:47
th1aOf course he ignored that.18:47
replaceafilli remember18:47
replaceafilli checked the ldap issue yesterday18:48
replaceafilli wasn't able to reproduce the issue18:48
replaceafillthe auth plugin works as expected18:48
th1aIt isn't falling back to blank schooltool passwords?18:49
replaceafillit does18:49
replaceafillif the ldap auth fails18:49
replaceafilli didn't test blank passwords...18:49
replaceafilli don't remember if i did18:50
th1aThat was the bug! ;-)18:50
replaceafillok, so to reproduce:18:50
replaceafill1. no user in ldap18:51
replaceafill2. blank password user in ST?18:51
replaceafillhow do i blank a password...?18:52
replaceafillfor student000 for example18:52
th1aWell, no password for starters.18:52
replaceafillok, new user then18:52
th1aHere's what I interpret as the scenario.18:52
th1a1) Person exists in LDAP.18:52
th1a2) Initially signs into SchoolTool via LDAP.18:52
th1a3) There is now a SchoolTool user with no SchoolTool password.18:53
th1a4) They try to sign in with no password, which fails against LDAP, but "matches" the non-existent SchoolTool password.18:54
replaceafilllet me try again18:54
replaceafillbut i remember i did  that18:54
th1aIt isn't SUPPOSED to.18:54
replaceafilland ST behaves as expected18:54
replaceafillafter the ldap auth fails18:54
replaceafillas expected = users with no password can't log in18:54
replaceafilllet me try from scratch18:54
th1aI mean, this is the problem with LDAP.  Some other part of the system can be misconfigured.18:59
th1aGive it one more shot and then we'll tell him we can't reproduce and ask for more details.18:59
replaceafillok, 1) and 2) successful19:01
replaceafill3) confirmed i guess19:01
replaceafilllogging out19:01
replaceafill4) fails19:02
replaceafilli can't log in with no password19:02
th1aYou're using openldap?19:04
th1aWhat's it called?19:04
replaceafillthis is what i've installed since i started this task:19:06
replaceafillInstall: libsasl2-dev:amd64 (2.1.25.dfsg1-17build1)19:06
replaceafillInstall: libslp1:amd64 (1.2.1-9ubuntu0.2, automatic), ldap-utils:amd64 (2.4.31-1+nmu2ubuntu8.2), slapd:amd64 (2.4.31-1+nmu2ubuntu8.2)19:06
replaceafilland that's it19:06
replaceafilli just followed a random tutorial on ldap19:06
replaceafillslapd - OpenLDAP server (slapd)19:09
replaceafilldidn't know that19:09
replaceafillok, can i put the ldap stuff aside and move to journey now?19:09
replaceafilli didn't do much yesterday other than ldap19:10
th1aIs there anything this person can do about this himself?
replaceafillif he's using ubuntu to browse ST he could get rid of this line in the main.pt19:15
replaceafill<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//,bold&subset=Latin" />19:15
replaceafillthat's been fixed in the ark branch19:15
th1aWhat if he's not using Ubuntu to browse?19:16
replaceafillif he doesn't have the font installed in his system he just will see it differently19:17
replaceafillwith Verdana, bitstream, etc19:17
th1aWhat would the path be to
replaceafilllet me double check that19:18
replaceafillyep, that's the right path19:18
th1aThis kind of thing rings a bell...19:22
replaceafillno idea about that one19:22
th1aI guess that's it.19:24
th1aDavid is going to try to export/import.19:24
th1aThanks replaceafill.19:35
replaceafillok, thanks th1a19:35
