sshd fails to properly restart requiring console intervention
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
A remote upgrade of sshd from the wolverine beta to the openssh version 2.5
20010225 build of rawhide fails to restart sshd after performing an
upgrade. I should
be able to remotely upgrade sshd without having to have sshd restarted from
physical console of the machine.
Was sshd running previously? What messages did you get when you ran the
The machine was running a stock wolverine setup. sshd was running. I was sshed
into the machine remotely playing around. I remotely upgraded the kernel to
the rawhide kernel, and remotely rebooted the box. After the machien came back,
I ssh'd back in and did an rpm -Fhv openssh-* on the openssh rpms that I had
downloaded from porkchop.
Is this enough info ?
Oh head. after the rpm -Fvh finished, sshd closed my connection and I had to
get up from the couch, walk over, and restart sshd manually. extreme suckage.
The same happened to me, see #28611
This appears to be fixed, at least as of rawhide-20010906.
