Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189969
osad on Satellite client stops when jabberd is restarted on Satellite server
Last modified: 2007-10-23 22:44:13 EDT
Description of problem:
When osad looses the connection to jabberd, it stops running.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and start osad on a system registered with the Satellite.
2. Run "service jabberd restart" on the Satellite server.
3. Run "service osad status" on the Satellite client.
The osad process dies, administrators loose the Push to Client functionality
until they manually restart the osad service on all clients.
osad should continue running, and wait for the Jabber server to come back.
Currently, we install a crontab entry to periodically check if osad is still
running, and run "services osad restart" if it is not.
