Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 971408
virtlockd, init script and kill signals
Last modified: 2016-04-09 19:43:17 EDT
Created attachment 757679 [details]
Description of problem:
1) according to the doc, virtlockd uses SIGUSR1 to dump its state and then re-execs itself. Now I tried it and this seems to fail because virtlockd is being launched without a full path (when using the init script), thus re-exec fails with the error:
error : virLockDaemonPreExecRestart:1092 : Unable to restart self: No
such file or directory
2) since virtlockd needs to be started before libvirtd, the startup sequence number for virtlockd should be 96, not 97 for init levels 3,5
3) virtlockd needs /etc/libvirt/qemu-lockd.conf as default conf file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.04, but still in 1.0.6 as well.
See attachment for a unified diff fix. Two files change: src/locking/virtlockd.init.in and src/locking/virtlockd.sysconf . The diff is against 1.0.4, but is still valid for 1.0.6 as wel.
Sorry this never received a response. For future reference patches should go to the mailing list which gets much better attention.
The config file bit doesn't seem to be required... from my inspection of the code it looks like the daemon knows to look for that file if a config isn't specific, and I think it's always been like that
The init level bit was fixed by:
