Description Petr Šabata 2011-08-26 14:27:54 UTC
Description of problem:
Restarting the crond service needlessly reports failure if the service wasn't running before.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure crond isn't running
2. service crond restart
Actual results:
# service crond restart
Stopping crond: [FAILED]
Starting crond: [  OK  ]

Expected results:
# service crond restart
Starting crond: [  OK  ]

Additional info:
Restarting a stopped service should just start it without making an impression of something failing.
