Improve handling of the symlinks during IPA upgrades
Last modified: 2012-09-19 15:36:12 EDT
There is an issue with the symlinks to jars during upgrade from different versions
Alexander Bokovoy did fix this for Fedora with F16 release in past -- in /usr/libexec/freeipa-systemd-update in Fedora packages there is an elaborate code to handle these updates of the symlinks.
We need to extract that part and add to RHEL6.
For more details see mail thread:
Please add steps to reproduce / verify ... this is very confusing as that systemd is not yet in RHEL?
This is not an IPA problem, we simply recognize it during upgrade and attempt to fix it in Fedora (when we fix other things, such as converting from SysV to systemd).
The problem seems to be that on 64-bit platforms the symlink for jss was in /usr/lib and not in /usr/lib64 and this caused dogtag to not start.
I think this bug should be re-pointed to either dogtag or jss and should not be fixed by IPA.
As it is not an IPA problem I am closing this BZ.
Other BZs will be open against the corresponding java packages that cause the problem in the first place.
