Description Niels de Vos 2016-08-05 13:41:27 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1364492 +++

Description of problem:
I'm not sure what caused /var/run/ to be missing, but after an update systemd was unable to start glusterd again. glusterd was running, but a 2nd instance was unable to bind the 24007 port (address already in use).

I was not able to reproduce this when configuring the glusterd.service file as Type=simple and adding the --no-daemon parameter to the commandline.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.8.1 (on Fedora 23/24)

How reproducible:
Have updates installed by ansible, with a restart of the glusterd service after the packages got updated.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install and configure Gluster, make sure that the glusterd service is running
2. update the packages
3. restart the glusterd service with "systemctl restart glusterd"

Actual results:
glusterd fails to restart

Expected results:
glusterd should have been restarted with the new (updated) binaries
