#1192: RHEL6: Init-script not giving correct startup
 Reporter:  Ueland  |       Type:  defect
   Status:  new     |   Priority:  normal
Milestone:          |  Component:  varnishd
  Version:  3.0.2   |   Severity:  normal
 Keywords:          |
 Running Varnish 3.0.2 from RPM on a RHEL6 box, after a crash, varnish
 would not start anymore, even then the init script says that it has
 started. I have not yet figured out why varnish does not start. But the
 main issue here is that the init script says "Ok" when it should say

 [root at dev ~]# rpm -qa|grep varnish
 (PS: Running the RHEL5-package on RHEL6, not sure if this is the problem

 [root at dev ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)

 [root at dev ~]# service varnish start
 Starting Varnish Cache:                                    [  OK  ]
 [root at dev ~]# ps -ef|grep varnish
 root      7718  4694  0 19:25 pts/0    00:00:00 grep varnish

 (nothing running from Varnish)
