nfs-utils: rpm.mountd dies since rhel4.3 -> 4.4 upgrade
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:54 EST
I'm seeing something similar to bug #206483... but no syslog, rpc.mountd just
mysteriously dies and goes awol.
The i686 server in question had been running happily for the previous 75 days w/
rhel 4.3... that is until I updated to 4.4 yesterday and rebooted. rpc.mountd
has died now 5 times since then.
If it's relavent, we're using NIS, but not netgroups.
Install the rpms from http://people.redhat.com/steved/bz209121/. If
the problem still exists, either have rpc.mountd create a core
file by setting the core file size via ulimit -c unlimited or
start rpc.mountd from within gdb using the '-f' as a command arg.
The goal being to get a backtrace of where the problem starts.
Taking a hint from the CentOS mailing list, where others were having problems
with nscd (crashing, etc...), I disabled nscd, and haven't had an rpm.mountd
crash yet. *crosses fingers*.
I've not heard of any other reports of this. Is this still an issue?
This may be a dupe of BZ 242465. I've already committed the patch below for 4.6:
I'll see if I can put some nfs-utils packages up on my peoplepage here soon for
you to test...
I've placed some RHEL4 nfs-utils packages on my people page:
If you're still able to reproduce this, could you test them someplace
non-critical and let me know if the problem still exists?
I've never had any problems since disabling nscd (see comment #2).
Afaic, issue is resolved. (hmm, it wouldn't let me close...)
I have nowhere (non-critical) to test your experimental nfs-utils pkgs atm, but
if I get a chance to... I'll come back here and report.
Fair enough. I'll close this with a resolution of INSUFFICIENT_DATA. If the
problem resurfaces then please reopen this case.
