Installing a ConfigFile kills symlinks

Reported by: naapuri Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: bcfg2-client Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I had a ConfigFile? statement for /foo/bar/baz.conf. On the client, /foo was a symlink to /real-foo, and there the bar/ subdir didn't exist.

When installing baz.conf, the bcfg2 client killed the /foo -> /real-foo symlink and created directories /foo/ and /foo/bar/.

I expected the client not to mind that /foo/ is a symlink.

I can't replicate this problem in my test environment, but this patch both cleans up the code and adds more logging to indicate why it is (re)creating paths.

Since this isn't reproducable with the new code, I am closing this ticket for now.
