Description Kamil Páral 2010-08-05 09:33:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Initscripts rpcgssd and rpcsvcgssd do not conform to the LSB requirements. When I run:
$ service rpcgssd <anything>
I get no output and return code 6.

I believe it's caused by these lines:

# See if we are configured to start
[ "${SECURE_NFS}" != "yes" ] && exit 6

But that's not the point. Initscript should *always* return usage line on "service <service> usage" and *always* return their status on "service <service> status". These actions should never fail.

They can fail on other actions, but they should fail with reasonable error message at least.

From what I've seen this problem applies to rpcgssd and rpcsvcgssd initscripts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have ${SECURE_NFS} to false
2. service rpcgssd usage (status, whatever)

Actual results:
No output

Expected results:
LSB compliant output and return code
