rsyncd gets confused with timezones when logging to syslog
Last modified: 2010-03-19 03:48:37 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm running rsyncd and it seems to be getting confused with the time-zone when
logging. Here's a typical entry in messages:
Aug 2 09:30:01 rsyncd: rsync on /home from user@host (192.168.0.1)
Aug 2 08:30:01 rsyncd: wrote 2629 bytes read 122 bytes total size 626582
The correct local time is 09:30:01, whereas GMT is 08:30:01. So for some reason
it logs its first entry in local time, then the second entry in GMT. Every other
application logs using local time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run rsyncd
2. Connect to it and perform some operation
The two log entries generated by rsyncd in messages use different time zones.
The two log entries generated by rsyncd in messages both use local time.
Same as bug #205326

Since there is only one more release of RHEL-4 planned and it will be focused on security and performance, I'm planning to close this bug as WONTFIX. Can you please confirm this behavior in RHEL5 or is it solved there?
I'm afraid I no longer have a RHEL system to test this with, but I managed to find this upstream bug, which says that this bug was fixed in rsync 2.6.9:
Thank you very much. It looks like the issue hasn't been fixed in RHEL-5. I'm copying the bug there and closing this one.
