Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1003004
initscript does not source /etc/sysconfig/cobbler
Last modified: 2014-08-07 07:47:51 EDT
Description of problem:
It's a common convention for an initscript to source a configuration file in /etc/sysconfig/ to get local configuration changes. /etc/init.d/cobblerd doesn't do this.
As such there is no way to set something in cobblerd's environment such as proxy configuration.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
/etc/init.d/cobblerd should source /etc/sysconfig/cobblerd for such things as setting a proxy in cobblerd's environment.
Hi Brian, this is a feature request and not really a bug. Could you open an issue over at github so I can track this there? Thanks!
Except that /etc/sysconfig/* is a RHism. Do you really want to add distro-specific bits to the generic upstream project?
In any case, done: https://github.com/cobbler/cobbler/issues/579
While we wait for upstream to address this, can we please have a patched cobbler package that includes this?
The upstream ticket has been closed with the resolution that the fix is in the 2.6.0 release of cobbler.
I'm re-opening this ticket with an action of of updating the RH cobbler package to the upstream 2.6.0.
cobbler-2.6.2-1.el6 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 6.
cobbler-2.6.3-1.el6 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 6.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 testing repository,

Update it with:
