#39 closed (fixed)

every sliver creation at using a slice generates over 200 e-mails to gpolab testbed-ops

I hope this is an easy fix, because it is making our mailserver slightly unhappy...

After yesterday's upgrade, Luisa created 10 slivers at As a result, we received over 1600 e-mails which looked like this:

From: Unprivileged user <>

Subject: [gpo-ops] PGENI.GPOLAB.BBN.COM:

End:     16:25:29:662445
Elapsed: 0.082565
Error:   2
Output:  Could not create credential object
$VAR1 = 0;

Over 200 of these e-mails contain the name of each sliver, and they appear to be sent approximately once per sliver per minute for about 3 hours.

I replicated this just now with my own ecgtest slice, and we have started receiving these e-mails for my slice too.

Just to get my wild guess on the record: is it possible that some code was added to the ProtoGENI AM to support registering slivers with a slice authority, e.g. for the benefit of the clearinghouse, and that, which is running stable-20120409, does not yet support the server side of this transaction?

If so, i'm going to go ahead and recommend that the AM side give up after less than 3 hours of failure. :>)

Also, i deleted my sliver at 09:12 EDT, and that appears to have stopped the e-mails, so that's something.

Just a note, I was only able to set up 8 slivers successfully, not the 10 I had intended to run.

Ah, yeah, you're right: i didn't check my own math. We received no e-mails for 10vmslice9 or 10vmslice10, which i assume are the ones that failed.

Yup! The 9th and 10th slice failed. The slices are named (and created) in numerical order, so that I can keep them straight.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I got my wild guess on the record so it could be immediately disproven by something totally obvious: had a clock which was several hours off, so various SSL discussions were failing.

This is now fixed. Thanks!
