Description Behdad Esfahbod 2003-06-30 16:57:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Starting named lacks a final newline.  Also stopping it does not write the
success or failure note.

I fixed this by adding a final "echo" in the start() function:

         daemon /usr/sbin/named -u named ${OPTIONS}
+        echo
         [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/named
         return $RETVAL

and in stop():

         # Stop daemons.
         echo -n $"Stopping $prog: "
-        /usr/sbin/rndc stop
+        /usr/sbin/rndc stop && success $"$base shutdown" || failure $"$base

Another thing, starting named always writes success even if the server failed to
start.  This is because /usr/sbin/named always returns 0, that should be fixed.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
For the first bug:
1. service named restart
For the second:
1. Corrupt your /etc/named.conf
2. service named start

Actual Results:  First bug:
[root@shalil root]# service named restart
Stopping named:
[root@shalil root]#                                        [  OK  ]
Second bug:
It writes OK.

Expected Results:  First bug:
[root@gilas root]# service named restart
Stopping named:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting named:                                            [  OK  ]
[root@gilas root]#
Second bug:
It should fail.
