Description Samuel Mannehed cendio 2015-05-26 15:22:06 CEST
These two files uses "service <service> condrestart" to restart vsmagent and vsmserver after logrotate:


This doesn't work on (at least) SLES 12:

# /opt/thinlinc/libexec/service vsmagent condrestart
Usage: /sbin/service vsmagent {start|stop|reload|restart|try-restart|force-reload|status}

This has the effect that the old logfiles continue being used until the machine is restarted or until the services are properly restarted.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2015-05-26 15:58:38 CEST
Apparently "condrestart" is a Red Hat:ism. The action specified by LSB is "try-restart", which is also included in the usage text on SLES 12.
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2015-05-26 16:11:29 CEST
Fixed in r30337.

Should be tested on all distributions to check that there isn't a problem with "try-restart".
Comment 3 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2015-05-27 10:09:03 CEST
Tested and verified to work with rc3 on SLES 12 and RHEL 7. I will test on Ubuntu 14.04 before closing this.
Comment 4 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2015-05-27 13:29:33 CEST
It's working well with rc3 on Ubuntu 14.04 as well and nothing seem to have broken due to the changes. Closing.
