Description oldmanduser 2012-04-17 16:10:19 MSD
Description of problem: I have installed cisco vpn client. In ROSA EE 2011 the vpnagent used to start automatically during boot. But in 2012 I need to start it manually everytime. When I go to drakconf I see that none of the services are configured to be started on boot. I guess there is a disconnect between how the services are started during boot and what is shown in drakconf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cisco vpn client
2. Restart the system

Hello, can you please tell what package are you referring to when you speaking about cisco vpn agent ? Is it some external entity downloaded from some website ?

I am using cisco anyconnect vpn client. The installation went through fine. But then when I boot the vpnagent does not start. I digged through the logs and found the following

pcscd.service operation timed out. Terminating.

Since the service pcscd.service was timing out the Operating system had not got a chance to handle the other services which were supposed to be started. What I did is that I uninstalled pcsc-tools and pcsc-lite and things started working fine after that.

The observation I had was that when I started drakconf none of the services were selected, but then once I uninstalled the above mentioned package the services are correctly listed in drakconf.

i think the problem is as follows:

1. pcscd starts and runs fine:
$ ps ax | grep pcscd
 1899 ?        Sl     0:00 pcscd

2. but systemd says otherwise:
$ systemctl status pcscd.service 
pcscd.service - LSB: Smart Card Services
          Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcscd)
          Active: failed since Fri, 18 May 2012 13:04:31 +0400; 3 days ago
         Process: 1720 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcscd start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/pcscd.service
                  └ 1899 pcscd

i will deal with this next systemd-problem
