systemctl reload nscd.service is broken
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:53:54 EST
Description of problem:
On reload, the nscd.service script tries to execute an invalid command:
ExecReload=/usr/sbin/nscd -i service
It's a typo, the above should be:
ExecReload=/usr/sbin/nscd -i services
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'systemctl reload nscd.service'
# systemctl reload nscd.service
Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.
and in syslog:
nscd: nscd: 'service' is not a known database
nscd: Try `nscd --help' or `nscd --usage' for more information.
systemd: nscd.service: control process exited, code=exited status=64
After fixing the above typo, it succeeds with no output.
Fedora 17 is already fixed (or maybe it was never broken in the first place).
This was fixed in f17 and beyond. There are currently no plans to backport the patch to f16 or earlier releases.
