Immediately after completing deployment of the new UM 2.1 I am running into a roadblock when connecting to the web interface. After authenticating with the web interface I get the following when selecting my user type (service provider or aggregator - doesn't matter which):
I've redeployed the vApp twice so it's not a transient deployment issue. Networking seems fine - I can ping domains on the Internet from the SUSE console. Not sure what this message is referencing regarding the "server" it's contacting. It is deployed on ESXi 4.1 in a vCentre cluster, standard vswitches, nothing special.
Oh man, thanks David. The hilarious part of this is that I'm 100% certain that was tried with my first deployment attempt and didn't work, and then when I got the exact same problem after redeployment only tried a single attempt before writing up this post.
Worked a charm, thanks! All that professional artwork for such a simple issue...
Daniel, we mentioned this bug briefly in the release notes, but now you have documented it very nicely for us. So, time well spent on the professional artwork. Thanks!
This problem appears to be related to Ajax and HTTP Basic Authentication. Most likely, we will move away from basic auth (which was a longer-term plan anyway) to solve this.
