I'm setting up a new ovirt-4 system on a single machine to replace my old
vmware-server single-system infrastructure. I have a handful of users,
and I'd like to give them access to specific VM consoles (and possibly the
ability to start and stop the VMs). I don't want to set up a whole
FreeIPA system, instead I'd like to use the AAA-JDBC extension. But I
have a few questions that aren't really answered in the
1) The documentation talks about adding domains.. Must I do this or can I
just use the default (internal?) domain for my users?
No, you can use internal domain, but you can create new ones if you want.
2) I have a command-line interface to create new users -- is there any way
to do that in the UI?
No. In UI you can only manage permissions of already created users.
3) Must I create groups via the command line or can I create those in the
UI? If I have to create them in the CLI, must I manage the group
membership on the command line, too?
No UI, command line only.
4) Most importantly, is there any way for my users to change their
AAA-JDBC passwords via the web UI? Some of my users are halfway around
the world, so there's really no way I can sit with them on the command
line to let them set their password. I couldn't find anything in the
documentation about this, and indeed couldn't find anything in my (granted
limited) search of the web interface. Personally I would have considered
this a required feature that (IMNSHO) would have blocked a release.
There is 'change password' feature in UI. If you create some user and
predefine him some password it's expired by default. So user must
change it in next login. Password change is done in UI login dialog.
