I have installed RedHat GFS and Cluster suite as well on these machines. All of
the machines in the cluster suffer from this.
Can you please install debuginfo package and give me the core dump. Also it
would be better if you go to our support with this issue first.
According to up2date there is not package called debuginfo.
Also how would I go about contacting support ?
I guess you need to set RHN for debuginfo packages somehow... well, that's what
support is for. Use your customer login and password
I am sorry, but can someone please tell me where I can get the rpms so I can
download and install them either from up2date or just put it into Bugzilla here.
I can't seem to find a way to get the packages to resolve this ticket. I
enebaled up2date in debug and no such luck.
or you might try up2date install net-tools-debuginfo
ok, the correct answer is different. There are no debuginfo packages in RHN for
RHEL4 so you need to install the debuginfo package by hand from one of the ftp
I installed the net-tools-debuginfo. Now what do I need to run to get this to
give a core dump?
$ulimit -c unlimited
and send me the .core file you will get when netstat segfaults.

Any update ont eh status of this?
Hi Anand, can you please try rebuilding net-tools from Fedora devel. I believe
the issue I saw there with multiple interfaces will fix your issue as well.
Actually one of our sys-admins found a bad entry in the nsswitch.conf file.
We believe the entry
services: files nis
was wrong and changing it to
then restarting ypbind fixed the issue.
fixed the issue.
Looks like when netstast runs it reads the services line and sees nis and it
remains in an unfinished state.
Hmm, even with this line in nsswitch.conf and ypbind/ypserv running on localhost
I can't reproduce the crash.
Are there any other changes in you nsswitch.conf file? Also you yp.conf file
might be useful for me.
This might be an issue with our ypservers.
