Description Pavel Moravec 2017-01-18 21:19:06 UTC
Description of problem:
Starting foreman-proxy service on RHEL6 / via initscripts twice in a row causes service's pidfile deletion. _that_ causes "service foreman-proxy stop" wont halt the process.


start() method in /etc/init.d/foreman-proxy does not check for pidfile presence and directly launches new instance of the process. "service" command returns success (sic!) but the new instance detects it cant bind to port 9090 so it shutdowns. The new instance of the process first overwrites pidfile and then it deletes it (since shutdown of that PID happened).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
any, incl. 1.13.2-1.el6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
(Sat6 on RHEL6):
(all services stopped - or at least foreman-proxy one)

service foreman-proxy start
sleep 10
service foreman-proxy start
sleep 10
service foreman-proxy stop

(meantime, monitor if such process is running, and content of /var/run/foreman-proxy/foreman-proxy.pid)

(optionally, replace either "service .." call by katello-service command)

Actual results:
- pidfile is deleted during 2nd sleep
- process will be running at the end

Expected results:
- pidfile contains pid of running process
- process is stopped at the end

This is a downstream-only issue, as Upstream doesn't package init scripts anymore. Opened a PR: https://gitlab.sat.lab.tlv.redhat.com/satellite6/satellite-packaging/merge_requests/74

I do not see these being backported into 6.2.z. There are clones tracking these issues for other versions of satellite.
