#176 new defect

Warn about too long lockername on signup

Reported by: ezyang Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: sql Keywords: starter, shell


MySQL appears to bound the maximum size of a username to 16 characters; any longer and it rejects the name. We should warn users who attempt to sign up lockers that have this long name and figure out an alternate strategy for accomodating them.

  • Milestone set to Fedora 17

Hopefully this is something that's not too hard to test out of deploydev.

See #262 “Mangle locker names that are invalid hostnames and MySQL usernames” for what I think is a cleaner solution.
