None unless you have customized the services file. What happens is that
that file is a configuration file and rpm was instructed by the package to
not overwrite it. So rpm warns the user that the new configuration file
was created with a .rpmnew sufix just in case the user wants to take a
look at it and maybe translate any changes to the existing file.
