Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157602
A 'configtest' parameter for the smb service (attached).
Last modified: 2014-12-01 18:08:13 EST
Description of problem:
- apachectl configtest
It's hard for users to remember these different syntax checking tools. httpd's
init script has a 'configtest' parameter. I've just submitted one for named.
Here's an smb one.
The aim: consistency.
Its a minor change, so do you think this one could be rolled into the next RHEL4

updated init script with 'checkconf' parameter.
FYI, named in Rawhide now has a 'configtest' option. So now it's just
smb to go...

Although this bugzilla was approved for RHEL 4.5, we were unable
to resolve it in time to be included in the release. Therefore
it is now proposed for RHEL 4.6.
We don't have this in RHEL 5 or the development tree, so I don't think we should
do this for RHEL 4 yet. Leaving the flags as they are so that we'll roll this
