Description Karel Srot 2012-02-15 02:47:48 EST
should be using portreserve

To avoid port conflicts with services such as CUPS or IMAP 
bind should be using portreserve for reserving respective ports on RHEL6.


Typical changes required:

Given a SysV service package that uses a particular port, (say, krb5_prop/tcp -
754):

1) Create a file named after the service, for example 'krb5_prop', which
contains:

krb5_prop/tcp

2) In the spec, install this file in /etc/portreserve, i.e.,
/etc/portreserve/krb5_prop

3) In the spec, add 'Requires: portreserve' to the package that provides the
server.

4) In the init script, in the start() stanza, add:

    [ -x /sbin/portrelease ] && /sbin/portrelease krb5_prop &>/dev/null || :

before starting the daemon.

I forgot to mention that we are interested in ports withing the range 600 - 1023.
