Use of OneView External Repository with Authentication

Use of OneView External Repository with Authentication

I was testing the use of an external repository for OneView and noticed an apparently incorrectly formatted URL of the SPP baseline while using authentication on the external repository.

 

Here is the output of the SUT using the baseline hosted on the OneView appliance:

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32>sut /status

This operation may take a while

System Update Manager...................: HPE OneView

Update Manager URL......................: https://172.16.26.21

Deploy Type.............................: FirmwareAndOSDrivers

Task Status.............................: Bios:N/A; LocalStorage:N/A; Deploy:StageFailed

Staging Directory.......................: C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\hpsut\stagingdirectory

Baseline URI............................: http://172.16.26.21/nossl/fwbundles/882085_001_spp-Gen8_0-SPPGen80_15.iso

Baseline Version........................: Gen8.0

Mode of Operation.......................: AutoDeploy

Polling Interval In Minutes.............: 5

Force Deploy............................: No

Optional Components.....................: None

Enable iLO Queued Updates...............: false

User Action Needed......................: Staging operation may be slowed down due to the speed of the system, network connectivity speed to the system update manager or communication to iLO is lower.

 

Here is the output of SUT when using the baseline from an external repository:

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32>sut /status

This operation may take a while

System Update Manager...................: HPE OneView

Update Manager URL......................: https://172.16.26.21

Deploy Type.............................: FirmwareAndOSDrivers

Task Status.............................: Bios:N/A; LocalStorage:N/A; Deploy:Pending

Staging Directory.......................: C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\hpsut\stagingdirectory

Baseline URI............................: https://<********>ve1leg

Baseline Version........................: Waiting for staging

Mode of Operation.......................: AutoDeploy

Polling Interval In Minutes.............: 5

Force Deploy............................: No

Optional Components.....................: None

Enable iLO Queued Updates...............: false

User Action Needed......................: None

 

The correct format of the URI should be https://username:password@repository/isoname.iso yet it is putting my password at the end of the URI.

Hoping somebody can confirm this behavior.  Also is there any way to set a preference which repository a server profile would pull from if a baseline exists both internally and externally?
