proposed netdump init script
Comment 4 Dave Anderson 2003-12-01 16:54:08 EST
In addition to the netdump/syslog configuration issue
the error-handling in the current netdump init script
is almost non-existant; after a failire is detected,
it just continues instead of stopping.

The proposed version that's attached above handles
all of the "service netdump start" error conditions.  
Comment 5 Dave Anderson 2003-12-02 15:03:13 EST
The fix has been applied to:

  netdump-0.6.11-2 for AS2.1
  netdump-0.6.11-3 for RHEL3

The netdump errata for both AS2.1-U3 and RHEL3-U1 have been
updated to include this fix.  However, since the beta versions
of these errata have already been released, the changes will
not be seen until those errata have been updated. 
Comment 6 John Flanagan 2003-12-19 09:55:53 EST
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report. 
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
