inadyn.service expects pid file at /run/inadyn.pid
Last modified: 2012-05-26 03:27:09 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/lib/systemd/system/inadyn.service expects a pid file at /run/inadyn.pid , but inadyn-mt does not create it. The result is that "systemctl start inadyn.service" times out since systemd is waiting for a pid file that will never get created. We should either patch the service file so that no pid file is expected or wrap up inadyn with a script that determines the pid and writes it to /run/inadyn.pid
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install inadyn-mt
2. configure /etc/inadyn-mt.conf
3. systemctl service start inadyn.service
"Job failed. See system journal and 'systemctl status' for details."
"inadyn.service - Inadyn-mt, register an IP Address to a dynamic DNS provider
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/inadyn.service; enabled)
Active: failed (Result: timeout) since Mon, 07 May 2012 08:32:29 -0700; 6s ago
Process: 19761 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/inadyn (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
May 07 08:30:59 xxxxxxx INADYN: Mon May 7 08:30:59 2012: W:INADYN: ...."
Commenting out the PIDFile line in inadyn.service seems to work okay.
