Description Charles C. Figueiredo 2004-07-19 16:45:25 UTC

Description of problem:

I have a script to compare files across netgroups of systems, 
essentially. When my script compares a system's directory to a remote 
directory, it does the following:

rdist -t 120 -M 4 -P /usr/bin/ssh -v -R -f -
ssh other-box -l root rdistd -S

This has worked fine for years, until I installed a recent rdist 
update. If I run this against systems with rdist-6.1.5-30 installed, 
it works fine, if I try running it against the same box, or against 
another box with rdist-6.1.5-34.30.1, I get massive spewage of the 
following errors:
source-box: target-box: REMOTE 
ERROR: /usr/local/oracle/u01/app/oracle/product/
7 -> libclntsh.so.8.0: symlink failed: File exists

If I initiate this from a 6.1.5-34.30.1 to a 6.1.5-30 it works fine, 
it's only when the target is also -34 that it generates this.

Any idea what's going on?
