Description Jenny Galipeau 2009-07-20 11:45:58 EDT
Description of problem:

If you try to start SSSD services with an invalid sssd.conf file - example: no
domains configured.  The service appears to start successfully and returns 0.

[root@localhost sssd]# service sssd start
Starting sssd:                                             [  OK  ]

[root@localhost sssd]# echo $?

[root@localhost sssd]# service sssd status
sssd dead but pid file exists

[root@localhost sssd]# ps -ef | grep sssd
root     11646 11544  0 11:36 pts/0    00:00:00 grep sssd

This is true for both Fedora 11 and RHEL 5.3.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  yum install sssd
2.  do not edit sssd.conf file, but use default with no domains configured and
start SSSD
    service sssd start
3.  echo $?
4.  service sssd status
5.  ps -ef | grep sssd

Actual results:
Service appears to start successfully
return code status is 0
pid file is created even though service did not start

Expected results:
Appropriate error message 
non 0 return code status
pid file not created
