Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212791
FC5=>FC6 upgrade replaced ntp.conf with default stub
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 EDT
Description of problem: Upgrade replaced ntp.conf with a default stub file,
effectively disabling ntp on the production server after the upgrade. Upgrades
should install new default stub files as .rpmnew. In cases where substantial
changes are made in file formats, script editing during the update to correct is
preferred over disabling the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Appears to be always, did both our servers.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. CDROM upgrade from FC5 to FC6
ntp server was effectively disabled by the upgrade.
upgrade should leave server functional, as before, unless unaviodable version
skew is created.
The ntp.conf file is marked as noreplace, so it shouldn't be replaced unless it
is the original file from the old package.
Was the ntp.conf file modified? Or problem is that the new default config isn't
working correctly, but the old default config was?
