I believe you need two patches, one in ironic and one in sushy.



I think it is variation, and the comment about working after you restart
the conductor is the big signal to me. I’m on a phone on a bad data
connection, if you email me on Monday I can see what versions the fixes
would be in.

For the record, it is a session cache issue, the bug was that the service
didn’t quite know what to do when auth fails.
