Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2012-04-04 22:21:27 UTC
Description of problem:
When used in a non-renewing mode (getcert was used with the -R flag), after certmonger notifies the administrator that the certificate is no longer valid, 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
certmonger-0.56

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set your system clock back to 2004.
2. Stop IPA.
3. Run "getcert start-tracking -d /etc/httpd/alias -n ipaCert -p /etc/httpd/alias/pwdfile.txt -R".
4. Stop certmonger.
5. Set your clock ahead to 2007.
6. Start certmonger.
  
Actual results:
7. Watch /var/log/messages start filling up.

Expected results:
7. Watch one message land in /var/log/messages, and observe that another doesn't get logged for either 24 hours or until the service is restarted, whichever comes first.

Comment 3 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 08:16:16 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 4 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 23:08:55 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

it immediately checks again, and notifies the administrator again.  This sequence of events repeats indefinitely.

Verified.
