Description Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2017-05-15 11:43:10 CEST
Although the service is running, the UMC module "system services" shows it as stopped. When using "start" on it, afterwards it is still shown as stopped (wasn't restarted). The "restart" button works (new PID), but the services keeps being shows as "stopped".

"systemctl status cyrus-imapd.service" shows it as "active (running)" and returns with 0.

r79347: fix UMC module "system services" showing Cyrus as always stopped (regression introduced with r78967)
r79348: advisory

Package: univention-mail-cyrus
Version: 9.0.0-11A~
Branch: ucs_4.2-0
Scope: errata4.2-0
Comment 2 Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2017-05-18 14:38:44 CEST

Due to bug 43470 there are 2 files within the source package, that try to create /etc/univention/service/univention-mail-cyrus.cfg:
- debian/univention-mail-cyrus.univention-service
- conffiles/etc/univention/service.info/services/univention-mail-cyrus.cfg

debian/univention-mail-cyrus.univention-service has been added by bug 43470. But it never came into effect, since the UCR template automatically creates a dpkg diversion (via dpkg-divert) so debian/univention-mail-cyrus.univention-service has always been redirected to 

The change done by r79347 was ineffective since it has been stored in 
/etc/univention/service/univention-mail-cyrus.cfg.debian after updating univention-mail-cyrus.

1) A proper fix would be the removal of the UCR template and the dpkg diversion (ask Philipp on how to achieve that properly).

2) A simple fix would be the removal of 
debian/univention-mail-cyrus.univention-service by merging the content into

I have no preference here.
