Server Index is setup to "use login and password from this server" Running cluster commands or running cron job manually is successful.
Running cron job on schedule fails with error:

Your "cron" job on ux-optimus-prime
/etc/webmin/cluster-cron/cron.pl 1247686080-9658

produced the following output:

Failed to run on ux-shockwave.na.acncorp.com : Password for this server is not available

    That is unfortunately expected - the "use login and password from this server" option passes your password from Webmin on the master system on to others for authentication. However, from cluster cron jobs that run in the background this password is not available, so the cron job fails.

    The solution is to have a username and password specified for each system in the Webmin Servers Index module.
