[ovirt-users] external users problem

Hi all,

We use ovirt 4.0.4 with FreeIPA as external provider. The external provider was configured via the 'ovirt-engine-extension-aaa-ldap-setup' command. The authentication works fine, but in the webui, when you go on the 'Active User Sessions', all users uuid is showed as '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'. Other problem, maybe related, when a user create a VM, by default a permission is created with the role of 'UserVmManager'. On the 'Permissions' pane, we see a line with no value for User, Authorization provider, Namespace. The only value set on this line is the role (UserVmManager in that case). When we try to remove this line, an exception occurs in the webui that prevent deletion of this line.

This behavior is verified on all our oVirt environments (oVirt 4.0.4 + FreeIPA)

Someone hit the same problem ?

Have a nice day.
