Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54256
pidentd doesn't like to be restarted
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:27 EDT
using the /etc/init.d/pidentd or service command APPEARS to work, but by
doing a ps or a "status" command to the init scripts you can see that it
usually dies soon after starting.
the workaround is to stop the deamon again then start it. The *second*
restart appears to work.
It fails with "bind(port=113) failed: Address already in use". Putting a sleep
between stop/start works around this.
(the release with the fix is 3.0.14-2)
I think condrestart could use a "sleep" also. Otherwise upgrading pidentd stops
the daemon. (I'm looking at 3.0.14-5.)
