Description Corey Marthaler 2006-01-24 10:29:19 EST
Description of problem:
I'd be a little frustrated if I were the customer in this case.

[root@taft-01 ~]# service ccsd start
Starting ccsd:                                             [FAILED]

From the console:
Jan 24 09:27:15 taft-01 ccsd: startup failed

Not a whole lot to go on.

I then tried the ccsd cmd by myself and learned that I had a parsing error
[root@taft-01 ~]# ccsd
/etc/cluster/cluster.conf:3: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch:
cluster line 2 and cman

# it should have been "<cman/>"

Created attachment 124051 [details]
fix for bz 178812

Changed to use 'action' command. Spits out any errors it encounters.
Comment 2 David Duffey 2006-02-10 10:12:58 EST
ccsd daemon should probably also be updated to give a textual error message.

For example, I did not install "magma-plugins" which is required for ccsd to
start but is not set as a dependency in RPM (there is another bugzilla that says
it is by design).

So, even a "ccsd -n" simply exits without any information except to return an
error code.  A simple message of "magma plugins not found" would help customers
realize their mistake.
Comment 3 Jonathan Earl Brassow 2006-02-15 13:38:06 EST
prompt> ccsd

has always given textual error messages.  However, it seems that

prompt> ccsd -n

has not been.  Although, the exit code (2) gives a good indication of the
problem - but users will not know what the exit code means...
Comment 4 Abhijith Das 2006-02-16 15:19:20 EST
fixed ccsd init script and ccsd daemon to print error messages. fix in CVS;
