ambiguous return of ECHILD in AS2.1 for ypserv [IT 52242]
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:08:45 EST
Description of problem:
ypserve occasionally dies with the message:
ypservsvc_run - poll failed: no child processes
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
unknown at present
ypserve should not die
ypserve should run
This appears to have been fixed in future versions of ypserv by simply
ignorign the ECHILD result.
Created attachment 105668 [details]
backport of RHEL3 patch to fix echild death in ypserv
This is a backport of the ypserv patch in RHEL3 to prevent this error
The patched package has been added to the dist-2.1AS-errata-candidate
The new package name is - ypserv-2.8-9.21.i386.rpm
Since this is checked in, should it be in modified state?
Yes, I didn't assign to myself when I fixed it. Moving to modified now.
