Fixed In:

Opened: Jan 16, 2015

Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

If a device is not in a Device Services Clustering configuration, but has configsync-ip set on its self device object, and this configsync-ip is set to none, an rsync daemon continues to listen on the old configsync-ip.

Impact

The rsync server may continue to listen even after it is expected that it will not listen.

Conditions

This occurs when the following conditions are met: -- Device is not in a Device Services Clustering configuration. -- Self device has a configsync-ip set.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The rsync daemon is now shut down properly when the configsync-ip is set to none, and no longer listens on configsync-ip.
