Rename profiles is not case sensitive (libreg dependency)
I ran profile manager according to your instructions: apprunner -ProfileManager. Next, I clicked on the NEW button to create a new profile called "bijalds". I went through the wizard and finally created the "bijalds" profile which was displayed in the list box next to "defaults". Next, I decided to rename the new profile I created to "Bijalds" by clicking on the rename button. I went to the rename screen and entered the change. When I came back to the initial screen, I only saw "defaults" in the list box and not my new renamed profile "Bijalds".
This is very strange. This never happened. If Brent or Grace, reproduces this bug, I will start looking into it.
this does not occur for me on Win or Linux platforms, profile selected is always renamed and remains in list. (this function is part of smoke test and is tested on each daily build) Brent, any comments?
This is the side effect of bug #7132. If that is resolved, we should not see this behavior.
If Dan Veditz provide some solution to this case sensitivity problem that will be fine. If not, we will have a mechanism on our end to not create the profile with the same name.
*** Bug 7128 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This needs a little time to see what libreg will do. If libreg gets enhanced, then we can dup this against 7132, otherwise we need to implement our own fix in M8.
Summary: Rename profiles functionality does not work → Rename profiles is not case sensitive (libreg dependency)
As Bug 7132 set it's TFV to M11, a method to check the existence of profile has been added. If someone tries to rename with the same name (with a different case), it prints an error onto the console saying that the profile already exists and pick a different name. With this fix, all the side-effects in the past will disappear. The ideal solution will be to have case sensitive model. So, the real fix will come in when Bug 7132 gets fixed. Moving TFV to M11.
These bugs are not critical for beta 1, moving out.
Moving all Profile Manager bugs to new Profile Manager Backend component. Profile Manager component to be deleted.
We can have profile name in a case sensitive fashion. On windows, directories are created with the suffixes -1, -2 and so on, if the profile names are same but differ in case. Marking this fixed.
