Description Noriko Hosoi 2015-10-27 16:37:08 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Now that https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/528 is fixed, the next step is to allow building the server with the instance specific scripts disabled.

Add a new configure option:
AC_ARG_ENABLE(instance-scripts, AS_HELP_STRING([--enable-instance-scripts], [Enable setup to create instance specific scripts in the system lib/dirsrv directory (default: yes)])

The default is yes, so as not to break any existing builds.  If you do not want setup to create the instance specific scripts, use configure ... --disable-instance-scripts

Comment 1 Viktor Ashirov 2016-04-06 20:36:44 UTC
Per email discussion, changing this to RFE. 


Fix Description: Instead of defining a configure option, we provide a new
option in setup-ds.pl, slapd.InstScriptsEnabled?, which defaults to false. All
new installs of 389 will NOT install with a inst_dir nor the scripts that are in
that directory.
Additionally, this change fixes setup-ds.pl to correctly use the sbindir scripts
to start/stop the server instance during installation.
Finally, we add support for setup-ds.pl so that in --update if the inst_dir
exists, scripts will be updated, but if it does not exist, no action is taken.
In time, we will alter --update to *remove* the scripts within inst_dir during
the update (We have no way of knowing if a customer has put custom scripts in
/opt/dirsrv/sbin/setup-ds.pl slapd.InstScriptsEnabled?=false

And by default old behaviour will be kept, i.e. scripts will be installed.

A minor bug - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1348903
Rest worked as expected.
