Description Petr Sklenar 2009-11-09 11:48:14 EST
Description of problem:
A] su - nonroot; service rhnsd restart
B] try-restart

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
[root@xen83 ~]# service rhnsd start
Starting Red Hat Network Daemon:                           [  OK  ]
[root@xen83 ~]# su - testuser
[testuser@xen83 ~]$ /etc/init.d/rhnsd restart
rm: cannot remove `/var/run/rhnsd.pid': Permission denied  [FAILED]

Starting Red Hat Network Daemon: 
touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/rhnsd': Permission denied
[testuser@xen83 ~]$ echo $?

Actual results:
restart like a nonroot return 0 when service is running and 1 when service is stopped

Expected results:
restart like a nonroot should return 4 in all cases

Expected results:
try-restart have to be there and it should be same as condrestart

Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2010-02-10 08:26:04 EST
Try-restart is implement for some time in spacewalk (commit d295180e5fbc3d49fd4891d9f2e36a9decaf0187)

the a] part has been fixed by commit ea34b43d2fd66b401c617748aa0379da4c5246db

Not cherrypicking to rhel6 as we will be rebasing within a month.
Comment 7 Šimon Lukašík 2010-04-27 07:52:52 EDT
Changing to VERIFIED

Testing procedure:
- general automation on i386, x86_64
- manual run on x86_64, RHEL6.0-20100422.12

Results of manual run:
- run as nonroot return 4 in all cases
- both condrestart & try-restart are implemented 
(same behaviour)
