#222 Admin Express issues "Internal Server Error" when the Config DS is down.
Closed: wontfix None Opened 10 years ago by rmeggins.


Description of problem:
1) Install DS, then shutdown the Configuration Directory Server.
2) Open the DS home page on the browser
3) Click "Red Hat Administration Express"
   It displays
   Internal Server Error
   The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration
   and was unable to complete your request.
   Please contact the server administrator, [no address given]
   and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything
   you might have done that may have caused the error.
   More information about this error may be available in the
   server error log.

The cause of this problem is the task htmladmin cannot be auth'ed by the config
DS and not cached in the hashtable in mod_admserv.
[debug] mod_admserv.c(1011): [client] check_auth_tasks_cache:
entry [cn=htmladmin,cn=configuration,cn=tasks,cn=admin-serv-laputa,cn=red hat
administration server,cn=server
group,cn=laputa.sfbay.redhat.com,ou=sfbay.redhat.com,o=netscaperoot] not

[debug] mod_admserv.c(1568): [client] admserv_check_authz: task

administration server, cn=server group, cn=laputa.sfbay.redhat.com,
ou=sfbay.redhat.com, o=netscaperoot] not cached for local superuser, referer:

We could treat htmladmin specially to be cached for local superuser.  Then,
either 1) issue more appropriate error message -- the config DS is down, or 2)
display the login window to prompt to input admin user and password to launch
the DS.
