Description Michal Jaegermann 2010-12-12 16:48:40 EST
Description of problem:

On the current rawhide an attempt to run

  service rpcidmapd start

results in the following:

Starting rpcidmapd (via systemctl):  Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.
                                                           [FAILED]

System logs do not say much more beyond "Unit rpcidmapd.service entered failed state." and trying to follow advice about 'systemctl status' brings up only "Too few arguments." in a response. 'service rpcidmapd status' repeats the above in a more wordy manner.  Not that enlightning.

Actually boot messages give somewhat more:

Starting Permit User Sessions...
rpc.idmapd: libnfsidmap: requested translation method, 'nsswitch', is not available

rpc.idmapd: Unable to create name to user id mappings.

Only now something broke logging that in /var/log/boot.log and this is hard to find.  Any idea what is responsible for that bogosity?

Besides nothings seems to be wrong with /lib64/libnfsidmap/nsswitch.so library.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nfs-utils-1.2.3-5.fc15.x86_64
libnfsidmap-0.24-2.fc15.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

I'm seeing this as well.  /var/log/messages has:

Dec 15 18:53:34 v02 rpc.idmapd[1109]: libnfsidmap: using (default) domain: math.uh.edu
Dec 15 18:53:34 v02 rpc.idmapd[1109]: libnfsidmap: Unable to load plugin: /usr/lib64/libnfsidmap/nsswitch.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Dec 15 18:53:34 v02 rpc.idmapd[1109]: libnfsidmap: requested translation method, 'nsswitch', is not available
Dec 15 18:53:35 v02 systemd[1]: rpcidmapd.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1
Dec 15 18:53:35 v02 systemd[1]: Unit rpcidmapd.service entered failed state.

/usr/lib64/libnfsidmap is empty, but /lib64/libnfsidmap exists and has the proper stuff in it.  I made a symlink and restarted and the daemon starts.

nfs-utils-1.2.3-6.fc15.x86_64
libnfsidmap-0.24-2.fc15.x86_64
