iscsi initiator startup script does not create lock file in /var/lock/subsys
Last modified: 2012-06-26 12:09:18 EDT
Description of problem:
iscsi initiator startup script fails to create lock file /var/lock/subsys/iscsi
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure iscsi devices
2. start iscsi services
3. perform system shutdown
You will not see iscsi services being shut down...
You should see iscsi services being shut down...
Since iscsi services have not been shut down, /sys/block still lists iscsi
sd[a-z] devices even after networking has been turned off. System shutdown
never completes because it's not possible to "Synchronize SCSI cache for
sd[a-z]" after the network has gone away...
Adding "touch /var/lock/subsys/iscsi" in the start() function fixes this problem
iscsi-initiator-utils-126.96.36.1991-0.1 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
