tested on centos5 and rhel5

Comment 1 Juha Tuomala 2008-04-09 13:40:53 UTC
I've one instance on rhel5 which has been already initialized and fails similar 
way than this one on centos5 which has not been initialized.

Anyway, initialized or not, it should not fail and generate garbled output on 

Comment 2 Juha Tuomala 2008-04-09 13:54:17 UTC
Now initialized the centos5 db and:

[root@x ~]# service bcfg2-server restart
Stopping Configuration Management Server: /sbin/service: line 66: 22641 
Terminated              env -i LANG="$LANG" PATH="$PATH" 
[root@x ~]# bcfg2-server                                [  OK  ]

Comment 3 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2008-04-09 13:58:36 UTC
I do see a small buglet when you type "service bcfg2-server" in that it's
inserting "[OK]" into the output.  I'll see about getting that fixed.  "service
bcfg2-server" shouldn't do anything but print a usage message.  However, I don't
think that including a default configuration for bcfg2-server would be a good
thing.  The person that's setting up the server needs to go through the
"bcfg2-admin init" process to get a working installation.  If after running
"bcfg2-admin init" you still can't get bcfg2-server to start up then that's a
bug.  There ought to be some indication in the syslog of why it isn't starting up.

Comment 4 Juha Tuomala 2008-04-10 12:53:27 UTC
# service bcfg2-serverr  restart
Stopping bcfg2-server:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting bcfg2-server:                                     [  OK  ]
[root@x ]# service bcfg2-serverr  status
bcfg2-server (pid 32045) is running...
[root@x ]# service bcfg2-serverr  restart
Stopping bcfg2-server:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting bcfg2-server:                                     [  OK  ]
[root@x ]#

Okay, now i've working version done from proper rh camp template:

fixed version

Comment 6 Juha Tuomala 2008-04-14 11:11:40 UTC
Created attachment 302327 [details]
new version of daemon initscript

This one adds ability to pass cli options from /etc/sysconfig/bcfg2-server
config file.

Comment 7 John Morris 2014-02-26 17:24:59 UTC
This bug is filed against a very old release of bcfg2.  Closing it out.  If problems continue, please reopen or file a new bug.  Thank you.
