Description Chris Evans 1999-05-06 21:34:06 UTC
Scenario: Portmapper is NOT running.
I type "/etc/rc.d/init.d/statd start"
The command returns indicating success - green OK
However statd has FAILED to start but falsely reported
success

Do you mean /etc/rc.d/init/rstatd ?

[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/rstatd status
rpc.rstatd is stopped
[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap status
portmap (pid 19988) is running...
[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap stop
Stopping portmap services:          [  OK  ]
[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap status
portmap is stopped
[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/rstatd start
Starting rstat services:            [  OK  ]
[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/rstatd status

[root@gandalf /root]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap start
