Yeah, I agree. Things don't stop working... but this has. OK, that's
not true. hb_gui hasn't stopped working, the GUI still appears and
heartbeat is still operating fine, the only problem is that hb_gui will
now no longer connect to heartbeat.

I'm using 2.0.8 which is packaged for CentOS. I'm using 2.0.8. version
of of hb_gui and 2.0.8 of heartbeat.
I've installed hb_gui on three separate servers, two access the
heartbeat server via VPN and the third is on the same subnet as the
heartbeat server. All three connect using:
The 'heartbeat' user is definitely in the haclient group (see /etc/group
But every time I try to connect from either hb_gui client I get:
Failed in the authentication
User Name or Password may be wrong.
or the user desn't belong to the haclient group
on the GUI and the following in the log:
Nov 5 10:26:56 server01 mgmtd: : ERROR: on_listen receive login
Nov 5 10:32:10 server01 mgmtd: : ERROR: on_listen receive login
I'm at a bit of a loss what to do next really, I need to add another
Virtual IP today, but I can't connect :-(
