Authentication to Sunstone times out when user's password contains space (white character). Authentication driver is LDAP against AD. This used to work correctly on ONE 4.4

Spaces are not allowed for user names or passwords unless Sunstone is configured to escape them uncommenting this line from sunstone configuration:

:encode_user_password: true

You have more information here: http://docs.opennebula.org/4.6/administration/authentication/ldap.html#enabling-ldap-auth-in-sunstone

Could it be that your 4.4 installation had this configuration activated? By default this line is commented.

Yes, it was activated in 4.4. Sorry for false alarm. Please, close the ticket.
