Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2007:0602 normal SHIPPED_LIVE audit bug fix and enhancement update 2007-10-30 15:35:36 UTC

Description Michal Marciniszyn 2007-04-25 13:52:14 UTC
Description of problem:
Status function should always be finished when running the init script (at least
when we have root permissions). This code disables that in some occasion:
test -x /sbin/auditd  || exit 5
test -f /etc/audit/auditd.conf  || exit 6

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mv /etc/audit/auditd.conf.gotcha
2. service auditd status
3. echo $?
Actual results:

Expected results:
correct status code depending on the state of the function

Additional info:
This script is nearly correct, just move the tests into the start function.
For example see:
