Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2008:0989 normal SHIPPED_LIVE tmpwatch bug fix update 2008-12-03 12:40:27 UTC

Description Kay Diederichs 2006-09-13 10:09:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de-DE; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060805 CentOS/1.0.3-0.el4.1.centos4 SeaMonkey/1.0.3

Description of problem:
If /tmp  and/or  /var/tmp are their partition, the daily tmpwatch might delete the files aquota.user and aquota.group if they were not modified recently.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tmpwatch-2.9.1-1.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount /tmp and /var/tmp on their own partition
2. enable quotas for these filesystems, generate aquota.user and aquota.group using quotacheck
3. wait long enough (10 days for /tmp, 30 for /var/tmp)

Actual Results:
tmpwatch deletes those files

Expected Results:
tmpwatch should not delete these files as they are required

Additional info:
A workaround is to modify /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch and include these files . This should be the default for /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch .
