Description Simo Sorce 2011-07-20 17:57:42 EDT
The init script explicitly checks for a database file or pretend the db_library to be kldap.

I have a custom driver and the check fails.

At most the kadmin init script may check if db_library is present w/o trying to guess what value it should be set to.

But most probably it would be better to skip the check altogether and let kadmin log in /var/log/kadmin.log that there are errors.

The situation is particularly hard to discover because the initscript output is completely suppressed in F15 when systemctl gets involved.

I had to run it with SYSTEMCTL_SKIP_REDIRECT=1 to finally get the error and find out what was going on.
