Previously after a Red Hat Storage update, multiple entries of the configuration line "include = /etc/samba/rhs-samba.conf" were seen in smb.conf file. With this update, the update process ensures that only a single entry of this line is present in the smb.conf file.

Description Lalatendu Mohanty 2013-11-11 07:04:55 EST
Description of problem:

Samba package update is creating multiple entries of rhs-samba.conf in smb.conf
ie. each samba update it is creating additional entries of "include = /etc/samba/rhs-samba.conf" in smb.conf where as it should just create one entry
and if the entry is there it should more entries for subsequent updates.

Issue is in the spec file of samba (rhs). The grep string should have been grep -vq "include = $RHSCONF" instead of grep -vq 'include = $RHSCONF' as below code snippet.  

# bug fix rhbz#1012711

if grep -vq 'include = $RHSCONF' $SMBCONF

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHS with samba version samba-3.6.9-160.6.el6 and update samba package tosamba-3.6.9-160.7.el6

Actual results:

you can find two entries of include = /etc/samba/rhs-samba.conf

Expected results:

There should only one entry

IMO this bug is a must fix bug for U2 because when we will update samba package in U2 (if any) it will create more entries and it will look ugly
Comment 3 Vivek Agarwal 2013-12-19 00:25:55 EST
Fixed with new samba build: samba-3.6.9-167.5.el6rhs

Comment 5 Lalatendu Mohanty 2013-12-26 06:03:12 EST
Verified the bug with samba-common.x86_64 0:3.6.9-167.9.el6rhs (updated from samba-common.x86_64 0:3.6.9-167.8.el6rhs) and samba update is no more creating multiple entries. Hence marking this bug as verified.
