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.
The ready made RPM's, diffs etc. are available
Also, adding simple means to pass parameters via /etc/init.d/nfslockd

[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/nfslock
and defining the STATD_OPTIONS for example /etc/sysconfig/network
makes port fixing quite easy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpcinfo -p localhost
Actual Results: A random port is selected with 3.06
Expected Results: A fixed ports, provided in /etc/services has effect
Email, if there is any questions, please.
The statd options would be best sourced from /etc/sysconfig/nfs like
the mountd options. See my patch to the nfslock init.d script on bug
I second this request for a newer quota tools package. Having to
fiddle around and install new packages to support nfs connects to my
rather locked down server is annoying.
The quota package is up to 3.11 now so 3.09 would be the minimum
FC2 uses quota-3.10-2 now. I also see 'daemon rpc.statd
"$STATDARG"' in /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfslock. If it is really fixed
shouldn't this be updated to [Fixed] status?
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.
