illustation of proposed solution

Description of problem:
There are two problems that I encountered, but is they are easy to fix I'm putting them under one bugzilla.

1/ initscripts /etc/init.d/iscsi and /etc/init.d/iscsid are not removing theirs .pid file which results in bad return codes (non-lsb compliant) and "Process dead but pid file exists" message on each starting of the service. (diff to illustrate the proposed fix: etc-init.d-iscsi.diff)

2/ start() in /etc/init.d/iscsi is using RETVAL variable which is used as general return value. It should be either renamed or declared local. ((diff to illustrate the proposed fix: etc-init.d-iscsid.diff)

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

How reproducible: always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install iscsi-initiator-utils
2. service iscsi start
3. echo $? (issue 1)
4. service iscsi restart (issue 2)
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 5 Mike Christie 2010-07-19 16:29:20 UTC
This should be fixed in iscsi-initiator-utils-

It is already in snap7. I must have messed up and marked the wrong bz as modified.
