Hi Everyone,

     I recently upgraded to 3.0.19-1 and I noticed after I restarted the
service I was getting the following errors:

Apr 29 22:01:29 freeradius systemd[1]: Starting FreeRADIUS high performance
RADIUS server....
Apr 29 22:01:30 freeradius sh[1970]: make: *** No rule to make target

msg='unit=radiusd comm="systemd
" exe="/usr/lib/systemd/systemd" hostname=? addr=? terminal=? res=failed'

After a lot of digging, I found that a "bootstrap" script on the
/etc/raddb/certs/ directory was being called on
the /usr/lib/systemd/system/radiusd.service. This script overwrote my
current certificate files. I had to comment out the ExecStartPre=/bin/sh
/etc/raddb/certs/bootstrap to fix the problem. I am not sure if anyone else
encountered this problem before. Is this being addressed on future releases?
