did anyone actually get this working in oVirt 3.5 / EL6 - Engine? I am 
trying this for two days now.

Engine; EL6.5
Foreman; EL6.5

Foreman seems to do it's as I can use it to deploy hosts and also smart 
proxies are running fine.

I have opened a BZ [1]; because this really can not work out of the box 
with EL6 plain vanilla packages. I wonder if this was ever tested... ?
Java 7 used i n EL6 [4] does only support DH keys up to 1024byte. This 
is known issue in Foreman [2] as longer DH keys are now used by default 
in Foreman / PuppetCA.
A dirty fix confirmed working is adding default DH parameters to the 
foreman cert; effectively disabling it [3].

So I got SSL working and I get beyond the authentication (entering wrong 
data gets me auth errors)- however, I am still not able to add the 
external provider. Pressing 'test' results in
(Failed with error PROVIDER_FAILURE and code 5050)

Sample engine.log
2014-10-28 23:49:40,860 ERROR 
(ajp-- [6a3da4e7] Command 
org.ovirt.engine.core.bll.provider.TestProviderConnectivityCommand throw 
Vdc Bll exception. With error message VdcBLLException: PROVIDER_FAILURE 
(Failed with error PROVIDER_FAILURE and code 5050)

I can't find any more hints in oVirt; access logs in Foreman are telling 
me API queries by the engine. Did I miss a crucial step in the foreman 
setup? How can I debug this issue?

I am willing to upgrade openjdk; provided this does not break my engine...
