Description Jordan Russell 2003-04-06 17:19:59 UTC
Description of problem:
After upgrading to Red Hat Linux 9, I just got this e-mail today...

-------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Cron <root@hostname> run-parts /etc/cron.daily

/etc/cron.daily/logrotate:

Reloading named: [60G[  [0;32mOK[0;39m  ]
-------------------------------------------------------

The problem is in /etc/cron.daily/logrotate. It redirects stderr to /dev/null 
but not stdout.

To fix, this line:

        /sbin/service named reload  2> /dev/null || true

should be changed to:

        /sbin/service named reload  >/dev/null 2> /dev/null || true


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
bind-9.2.1-16

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-07 20:04:50 UTC
It will be fixed in the next release of bind.
