Description Ragnar Kjørstad 2008-02-07 12:37:12 EST
Description of problem:

/etc/init.d/nfs start fails (exit with a non-zero exit code) if nfs is already

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a export entry in /etc/exports
2. Run /etc/init.d/nfs start
3. Run /etc/init.d/nfs start again
Actual results:
Starting NFS services:  [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas: [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon: [FAILED]

Exitcode 1

Expected results:

Exitcode 0

Additional info:

The LSB specification
states that start on an already started service should be considdered success,
and return exit code 0.

It appears this has already been fixed in Fedora. The initscript in
nfs-utils-1.1.0-6.fc8 adheres to LSB.
