#1851 Consider using SIGHUP instead of restart with dbus
Closed: wontfix 3 years ago Opened 10 years ago by myllynen.

Currently ipa-client-install restarts dbus to make it aware of certmonger. However, certmonger.rpm %post uses killall -HUP dbus-daemon. dbus-daemon(1) states:

       SIGHUP will cause the D-Bus daemon to PARTIALLY reload  its  configura-
       tion file and to flush its user/group information caches. Some configu-
       ration changes would require kicking all apps off the bus; so they will
       only  take effect if you restart the daemon. Policy changes should take
       effect with SIGHUP.

If SIGHUP is enough for certmonger it should be used instead of daemon restart to minimize interference with the system.


I don't see where we restart messagebus, we just start it to be sure it is running before trying to start certmonger.

We could perhaps test this when new platform code update is available and see if this a real issue or not.
