Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246960
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:55:03 EDT
Please have a look at the wikipage
and change your initscripts to comply with the LSB standard.
Especially check the exit status and add a LSB Header.
E.g. starting a service should return with 0, if the service is already running and stopping a stopped service should also return with 0.
Also check, if your service has to be _on_ per default, and turn it off in the old chkconfig line, if not.
Mike: What's the status of this? Could you please roll an updated package?
I checked in the changes for this and rolled a new package. I ran rpmlint and
still have these errors:
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: E: non-readable /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf 0600
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: W: summary-not-capitalized iSCSI daemon and
iSCSI is the name of the protocol.
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: E: statically-linked-binary /sbin/iscsistart
We are working on this.
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: W: service-default-enabled /etc/rc.d/init.d/iscsi
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: W: no-reload-entry /etc/rc.d/init.d/iscsi
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: W: service-default-enabled /etc/rc.d/init.d/iscsid
iscsi-initiator-utils.x86_64: W: no-reload-entry /etc/rc.d/init.d/iscsid
There is no reload, because we do not fully support it yet (it is a dangerous,
so we are working on code to make it more user friendly).
And it is enabled, because I thought it was before and was not sure what to do.

I don't know how to deal with backwards compatibility, but it should certainly
NOT be on when newly installed (because some package, ehm libvirt, decides that
it needs iscsi-*utils -- bug 436600), moreover when it is broken (bug 436341 and
About defaulting of the init scripts read
(yes, it is a packaging draft, but it reflects commonly viewed opinion -- see
the discussion of this issue on fedora-devel (e.g.,
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Short intro: I've recently begun as an iscsi-initiator-utils co-maintainer and as such I'm looking into all open bugs.
The iscsi services are *vital* for systems using iscsi, so they must be enabled bu default.
iscsi-initiator-utils-18.104.22.1680-0.1.rc1.fc10 which will be in tomorrows rawhide has rewritten initscripts, which will silently exit with a 0 status ASAP when iscsi is not needed. This should migate any complaints as a user no longer sees any messages (when not using iscsi) and the actual time spend in the scripts is negligible (all the detection code does is 1 grep)
These new scripts have been written using the template from:
And meet all initscript guidelines, this I'm closing this.
