Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2008:0365 normal SHIPPED_LIVE dhcpv6 bug fix update 2008-05-21 11:43:59 UTC

Description Michal Marciniszyn 2007-04-26 12:29:54 UTC
Description of problem:
In both init scripts (dhcp6r/dhcp6s) there are several constructions that end
the script with error code 0 when the service is not started. For example:
# Check that networking is up.
[ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] && exit 0

# Check that files exist
[ -f /usr/sbin/dhcp6r ] || exit 0
[ -f /etc/sysconfig/dhcp6r ] || exit 0
Also there is at least one place with wrong error code (1 if script function is
not implemented (refresh/start_again :-) ) instead of 3) at the end of each script.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service network stop
2. service dhcp6r/s start/status
3. echo $?
Actual results:

Expected results:
non-zero exit code/status of the service

Additional info:
When fixing this bug, please obbey our init script guidelines and be sure that
status command is run correctly.
Our guidelines are on following two pages:

For an example of the script that returns the error codes correctly and always
runs status see:
