Default setup-ds-admin.pl issue?

Jerome Yanga wrote:

Fedora Directory Server 1.1.2 seems to have a broken setup-ds-admin.pl.

Is anybody else getting the same error below? I have tried Express,
Typical and Custom setup types and all of them give me this error. I
have even rebuilt the server and started from scratch.

The console gives me the following messages...

The setup log shows the following...

FYI, I followed the same procedure and setup answers with Fedora
Directory Server 1.1.1 a few weeks ago and it worked.


Try this:
setup-ds-admin.pl -ddd -k
-ddd will output lots of debugging info (to /tmp/setupXXXXX.log) and -k
will tell setup to keep the /tmp/setupXXXXX.inf file. WARNING - the
.inf file will contain your clear text passwords, so be sure to protect
that file appropriately.


Then, paste each file to fpaste.org and paste the links in a reply
email. Again, be sure to scrub each file for sensitive information
before pasting.

Help.

Regards,
Jerome

Jermoe,

I had the same issue yesterday and found that the owner on
/var/run/dirsrv were set to root. I changed it to "nobody" the default
for FDS, and was able to install just fine.


I found this bug which might be helpful.

Bug 430368 - Running setup-ds.pl on Fedora 8 fails: Server failed to
start !!! / Failed to open stats file

Thank you, Thomas and Rich, for the quick response. Changing the
ownership of /var/run/dirsrv worked like a charm.

Subject: setup-ds-admin.pl issue?

Fedora Directory Server 1.1.2 seems to have a broken setup-ds-admin.pl.

Is anybody else getting the same error below? I have tried Express,
Typical and Custom setup types and all of them give me this error. I
have even rebuilt the server and started from scratch.

The console gives me the following messages...

"Creating directory server . . .
