Description S. Eerkes 2003-04-04 02:52:13 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
Yesterday i upgraded 2 machines and installed 1 from scratch
1 from RedHat 7.3 to RedHat 9.0
1 from RedHat 8.0 to RedHat 9.0
1 clean install from RedHat 9.0
on all machine's i can't stop the named process by typing 
/etc/init.d/named stop kill the process is working fine (normal kill)
starting the named daemon with /etc/init.d/named start
is also working fine, how to solve this problem
i think the problem is in the "/usr/sbin/rndc" program
which will be executed from the /etc/init.d/named script

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /etc/init.d/named stop
2. ps -ef|grep named

Actual Results:  the named daemon was still running

Expected Results:  the named daemon should be not running anymore

Additional info:

version: bind-9.2.1-16 (RedHat 9.0 + latest patches 'up2date')

[root@smarthost root]# /etc/init.d/named stop
Stopping named:
[root@smarthost root]# /usr/sbin/rndc stop
[root@smarthost root]# ps -ef|grep named

Comment 1 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-04-07 00:21:44 EDT
I see this also.
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-04-07 00:31:11 EDT
I upgraded to bind-9.2.2-8 from rawhide and still see this problem.
Comment 3 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-04-07 01:03:19 EDT
Apr  7 05:00:07 localhost named[19069]: app.c:562: unexpected error:
Apr  7 05:00:07 localhost named[19069]: isc_app_shutdown() pthread_kill: No such

Got this in the logs after "service named stop".

This is even after trying recompiling(9.2.2-8) it on the machine.
Comment 4 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-04-07 01:58:34 EDT
I was able to get it to shutdown by recompiling without --enable-threads

I still don't get a proper OK from the stop though. It just says

Stopping named:
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-07 15:19:40 EDT
Yes we know about this problem, but it is Kernel related.  Basically there is a
thread signalling problem in the Kernel.  So when the named recieves the thread
shutdown kernel it goes into a weird state.  We have to wait for the errata
kernel to fix this problem.

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-07 15:20:43 EDT
85896  Is the bug description that causes this problem.

Comment 7 S. Eerkes 2003-04-07 16:32:23 EDT
i've got a message saying

You are not authorized to access bug #85896.

how can i see this ?
Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-07 16:47:43 EDT
Get a job at Red Hat :^)

I changed the permission so you should be able to see it now.

Comment 9 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-04-08 23:04:53 EDT
I can confirm that kernel-2.4.20-9 fixes my issue with the actual shutdown of
named when using service named stop.
Comment 10 S. Eerkes 2003-04-17 10:02:15 EDT
when stopping the deamon with new kernel it's stopping
only there is no [OK] sign
Comment 11 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-04-17 11:11:13 EDT
That problem has already been reported in another bug report, 87527.
Comment 12 S. Eerkes 2003-04-17 14:26:59 EDT
the line is not erased at start as discribed in problem 87527
but when manual stopping /etc/init.d/named stop then there is no [OK] sign
but the named is stopped
Comment 13 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-18 13:34:11 EDT
It works in bind-9.2.2-10.
