Description Martin Cermak 2012-03-28 15:49:24 UTC
Description of problem:

  systemd doesn't take care of ipmievd service fail

Steps to Reproduce:

I'm running ipmievd on a VM with no /dev/ipmi* device. 
Service ipmi is stopped: Now:

# service ipmievd start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  start ipmievd.service
# echo $?
# service ipmievd status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  status ipmievd.service
ipmievd.service - Ipmievd Daemon
          Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ipmievd.service; disabled)
          Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed, 28 Mar 2012 11:45:00 -0400; 4s ago
         Process: 4854 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/ipmievd $IPMIEVD_OPTIONS (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/ipmievd.service

Mar 28 11:45:00 dhcp-25-164.brq.redhat.com ipmievd[4854]: ipmievd: using pidfile /var/run/ipmievd.pid0
Mar 28 11:45:00 dhcp-25-164.brq.redhat.com ipmievd[4854]: Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory

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


How reproducible:


Actual results:

  Service fails to start, but returns exitcode 0.

Expected results:

  Service fails to start, but returns non-zero exitcode.

Additional info:

  Maybe the forking type in the unit file would do the trick.
