Description Konstantin Olchanski 2005-08-16 19:16:17 EDT
Description of problem:

If ypserv crashes, ypbind processes silently disappear instead of patiently
waiting for ypserv to come back.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Quite often, but not always. This time, in a cluster of about 10 machines, only
1 ypbind was missing. All the others survived and reconnected to ypserv when it
was restarted. ypbind on the NIS server machine seems to never disappear.

Steps to Reproduce:
Take an NIS server with a few NIS clients. Kill ypserv (the infamous "svc_run: -
poll failed: No child processes" problem in RHL9). Wait for, say, 12 hours,
restart ypserv.
Actual results:

On some clients ypbinds are gone and have to be restarted manually.

Expected results:

All ypbinds should survive the NIS outage and reconnect to ypserv when it
becomes available.

Additional info:

We see the same problem in Fedora 3. RHL9 was fine. No data for Fedora 1,2 or 4.

Forgot to say what I see in the system log: "ypbind[3317]: broadcast: RPC: Timed
out." while ypserv is down. Then these messages stop and ypbind is not running. K.O.

I believe this is the same problem that caused bz #167061.

Please try the ypbind-1.17.2-8 rpm and let me know if it solves your problem.

The ypbind-1.17.2-8 rpm can be found here: http://people.redhat.com/cfeist/ypbind/

No response to NEEDINFO since 9/6/06, closing as a dup.
