Yes, this is a bug. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501846

Due to the rename issue, your servers will be stopped and restarted, but
you should not lose your run level configuration. In what other way(s)
did they "crap out"?
well, since i had SSL in the server, the admin server and the console
communication between both, and when the servers were stopped, the setup-ds-
admin.pl couldn't connect to anything to do the upgrade and once i manually
re-added (chkconfig --add dirsrv...) and restarted, the SSL issue with setup-
ds-admin.pl became a problem as i had to then uninstall certs just to
reinstall them... yuk!
but i'm not worried about the change between fedora-ds* and 389-ds* now as i
removed all of fedora-ds* and installed fresh 389-ds* rpms and just simply
started over. -- i had just moved from OpenLDAP so that wasn't a big deal.
i also noticed last time that the setup-ds-admin.pl created duplicate
instances of my servers in the console -- and i wasn't sure how to get rid of
those which is also part of why i just "started over."
since i'm already using the renamed packages (the first round of them), i want
to be sure i'm ok with a yum upgrade and that the proper procedure is to
always run a setup-ds-admin.pl -u
due to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=501846
, i now have standard
ldap:// (instead of ldaps://) between the admin server and the ds so i should
be able to avoid that issue.
i'm still learning this 389-ds, coming from OpenLDAP where i simply did an yum
update and didn't need to do anything else :)
i guess, basically... what does one do if the server stops and they are not
able to run setup-ds-admin.pl? is it safe to restart the server services and
then try it again?
