Description of problem:
In the context of IPA I was doing more testing on expiring certs. I would do an installation and then set the current date forward to expire the certificates to ensure that certmonger would automaticaly renew them. I messed with the date too far so *everything* was expired, it wasn't pretty.
I reset the date back to now and wanted to fix the certmonger state which was CA_UNREACHABLE b/c the CA was down due to expired certs (it was 2030 after all).
I did ipa-getcert resubmit -i <id>, twice in a row (fat fingers)
Then I ran ipa-getcert list over and over to monitor it generating the CSR, submitting it and finally back to MONITORING.
I happened to run ps -ef and noticed a defunct process. I can only assume it is related to my fat fingering, I don't know for sure.
The process is:
root 4731 0.3 0.0 0 0 ? Z 13:53 0:00 [ipa-submit] <defunct>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Literally minutes after I tagged 0.25. When canceling a child process, the daemon isn't reaping its status, hence zombies. Targeting 0.26.
