nova-manage crashes when mysql root password contains special chars

asked 2011-07-04 15:28:33 -0500

When the mysql root password contains special chars (especially $ and @), nova-manage fails when trying to synchronize the database.

root@host:~# nova-manage db sync Command failed, please check log for more info

Please find attached an extract of /var/log/nova/nova-manage.log

(nova): TRACE: KeyError: 'ABCD' The root mysql password would be in this case something like $ABCD@

This is in fact desired behavior: flags value are actually Template strings, and "$ABCD" serves to reference the value of the ABCD flag.

Flag values are actually Python Template strings.

You should use "$$" to represent "$" in a flag value.
