Description Lukas Svaty 2017-07-27 07:25:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Engine-cleanup utility moves postgres conf files to backup files with timestamps. However without these files postgres is unable to start. Thus process of engine-cleanup && engine-setup needs manual intervention of creating new conf files.
These files should either be just copied to bakcups, if possible even backed up to original state before engine was installed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run engine-cleanup
2. try to run engine-setup (fails on database conf files missing)
3.  mv /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf.20170725150124 /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf
4. mv /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf.20170725150124 /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf
5. run engine setup -> success

Actual results:
Need manual creation of new conf files.

Expected results:
These conf files should be 
a) on engine-setup created by engine setup not just edited
b) on engine-cleanup copied not moved to backup
c) on engine-cleanup restored from backup of conf files created by engine-setup
