View Full Version : Failed password escaping

September 14th, 2015, 11:11 AM
Tried to follow:

http :// forums.zmanda. com/ bugzilla

from page:

http :// w's .zmanda .com /backup-mysql.html

in order to search/post a bug, but that link fails.

Anyways, using:
MySQL-zrm.noarch 3.0-6.el7 @epel

On CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503

When I have a MySQL backup user with a password including any of the characters (there may be others): #$*
I can successfully log in from the command line and phpMyAdmin, however, running:

mysql-zrm-scheduler --now

fails with a bad login message. Changing only the password to replace the above characters with accepted characters, everything works as expected.

Could someone file a bug in the appropriate location? You can even take credit for it, I don't really care, as long as it gets filed.


(Sorry about the URL's. Apparently, I'm not "old enough" yet. Reasonable, but painful.)

Just for the Google bits, here's the relevant log response:

BackupSet1:backup:ERROR: Output of command: 'mysqladmin --user="username" --password="*****" variables' is {
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'username'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
BackupSet1:backup:ERROR: Cannot connect to mysql server!
