Description Dmitri Pal 2012-09-10 18:03:38 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.
