RHQ 4.9

RHQ 3.0.0.B05

New Features

RHQ database password obfuscation

The database password is now by default obfuscated when installing the server. The encrypted password is stored in
bin/rhq-server.properties in the property rhq.server.database.password

If the database password is updated, it also needs to be changed in this property.
To generate a new password, the provided scripts $RHQ_SERVER_BIN/generate-db-password.sh or .bat can be used by giving the db-password as argument like this:

$ bin/generate-db-password.sh test
Encoded password: 5..6b8b45e01...e.

Support RHQ on Oracle 11

We have extended the support we currently have for 10g onto 11g.

Support executing agent side scripts as the result of an alert

It is possible to configure an alert to trigger the execution of an arbitrary script on a specific platform which is in inventory.

Support authorization via LDAP groups

RHQ administrators can associate RHQ roles to LDAP groups, rather than having to manually create RHQ roles and map RHQ users to them.
