Description Michal Marciniszyn 2007-06-04 15:36:37 UTC
Description of problem:
krb5 init scripts (kadmin/krb5kdc/krb524) contain incorrect error codes that
also prevent correct invocation of status command. For example
[ ${NETWORKING} = "no" ] && exit 0
appears in all scripts, also
if [ ! -f /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/principal ] ; then
   echo $"Error. Default principal database does not exist."
   exit 0
is not correct... There are more constructions like these in all three scripts.

applying the patches.
