Add documentation on how to use logrotate with IPA components
Last modified: 2014-07-29 16:25:46 EDT
Currently there is no mention of the logrotate utility in IPA documentation. However one of the customers open a case and the root cause of the case was that log rotate was creating wrong permissions on the log file after rotation and DS was failing to start.
There was also a different customer who claimed that after the log rotation IPA was crashing.
It seems that we need to document recommended log rotate settings for IPA so that customers avoid problems like wrong permissions and ownership.
May be there should be a set of simple guidelines like "if you plan to use logrotate make sure that: ..."
Mass closure. These bugs were live in RHEL 6.5.
