Description Mike MacCana 2005-05-12 23:09:58 EDT
Description of problem:
- apachectl configtest
- named-checkconf
- testparm

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
samba update?

Created attachment 114321 [details]
updated init script with 'checkconf' parameter.
Comment 2 Mike MacCana 2005-05-17 23:59:16 EDT
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
one over.
