Description Riku Meskanen 2003-11-15 07:48:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:

It would be advisable to upgrade to quota-3.09, please.

Starting from 3.08 it is possible to fix a desired port
with rpc.rquotad which is what propably anybody running
a FW (iptables) would like to have.

See http://www.ba.infn.it/calcolo/documenti/NFSServer.html#Firewall

The ready made RPM's, diffs etc. are available 

Also, adding simple means to pass parameters via /etc/init.d/nfslockd

and defining the STATD_OPTIONS for example /etc/sysconfig/network
makes port fixing quite easy.

The statd options would be best sourced from /etc/sysconfig/nfs like
the mountd options.  See my patch to the nfslock init.d script on bug

I second this request for a newer quota tools package.  Having to
fiddle around and install new packages to support nfs connects to my
rather locked down server is annoying.

The quota package is up to 3.11 now so 3.09 would be the minimum
version really.
Comment 2 Doncho N. Gunchev 2004-05-29 21:00:58 EDT
    FC2 uses quota-3.10-2 now. I also see 'daemon rpc.statd
"$STATDARG"' in /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfslock. If it is really fixed
shouldn't this be updated to [Fixed] status?
Comment 3 Riku Meskanen 2004-05-30 03:52:04 EDT
Indeed for the FC2 yes, it's fixed.

For FC1 there is method (nfs-utils-1.0.6) fixing rpc.stad 
ports, but quota is still 3.06-11.

Anyway as this was at least for my side RFE, it's done & fixed now.

Thanks guys.
