Description Nathan Kinder 2013-12-17 21:34:20 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

When removing the last instance of 389, we should clean up /var/lock/dirsrv, and maybe other directories like this(/var/run/dirsrv, etc), because if you create a DS instance running as a different user than the previous instance, these "old" directories remain, and prevent a new server instance from being created.

To reproduce:

[1] run setup-ds.pl and specify "nobody" as the user and group for the server instance.
[2] run remove-ds.pl
[3] Create a user and group called "dirsrv"
[4] run setup.pl and specify "dirsrv" as the user and group
[5] setup fails.

$ rpm -qa  | grep 389

$ sudo setup-ds.pl -s -f template_nobody.inf 
Your new DS instance 'rhel7ds' was successfully created.

$ ls -l /var/lock/ | grep dirsrv
drwxrwx---. 3 nobody nobody 60 Dec 10 15:44 dirsrv
$ sudo remove-ds.pl -i slapd-rhel7ds
Instance slapd-rhel7ds removed.

$ ls -l /var/lock | grep dirsrv
$ echo $?
$ sudo setup-ds.pl -s -f template_dirsrv.inf
