Description Joseph Shraibman 2003-11-13 20:08:00 EST
Description of problem:
When I run /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables restart I break ntpd.  I suggest
the iptables script on (re)start checks the status of ntpd, and if
ntpd is running it should restart ntpd (or at least print a warning

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables restart
2. wait awhile
3. /usr/sbin/ntpq -c peers
Actual results:
ntpd losses sync with upstream servers

Additional info:
Should be trivial shell script change. /etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd status
exits with an error code if ntpd is not running. I could do it myself
if asked.
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-11-18 06:08:23 EST
Please open ntp ports for your ntp servers in the iptables configuration.
There is no way that ipatbles can restart other services and this might not be a
good idea for some services.

Closing as NOTABUG.
