Description of problem:
rpc.svcgssd failed to start, complaining unable to open a file at:
Indeed it happened cause the module rpcsec_gss_krb5 isn't loaded
automatically by gssd script when NFS starts.
This is first mentioned by Chuck Level at NFSv4 mailing list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.6-39 to 188.8.131.52
Steps to Reproduce:
1./usr/sbin/rpc.svcgssd -f -v
Actual Results: Unable to open file
I reported a similiar bug under 149579 for Enterprise 4 Beta under a
different name. Cause I was unable to shift it to Enterprise standard
version, as I also learned from Chuck Lever's post on NFSv4 mailing
list that this is reproducable for NFS3, I think this may be a
universial problem for all nfs-util package.
A suggested fix would be:
When SECURE_NFS="yes" is indicated in /etc/sysconfig/nfs
then modprobe rpcsec_gss_krb5 automatically in init.d/rpc(svc)gssd
This is fixed in nfs-utils-184.108.40.206
