I have two OES2018sp2 servers, and they are both showing this problem
/var/log/messages shows repeated attempts to start novell-httpstkd.service, and they repeatedly fail due to timeout, with message:
"systemd: novell-httpstkd.service: PID file /var/run/httpstkd.pid not readable (yet?) after start: No such file or directory"
the directory exists, but the file is not created. If I manually create a file after trying to start the service I get the same error, followed by the file being erased when it times out.
I cant find any recent mention of httpstkd issues, is this just superficial or something which needs fixing?
