Description Warren Togami 2007-10-16 18:29:36 UTC
If rpcbind is not running for some reason, and service nfs starts, it gets stuck

Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas: Cannot register service: RPC: Unable to receive; errno =
Connection refused
rpc.rquotad: unable to register (RQUOTAPROG, RQUOTAVERS, udp).
Starting NFS daemon: 

This is especially bad because it makes boot be stuck forever.  It should just
fail instead of getting stuck.

I guess this is in fact is #337451

Could you please check warren?

No, that was only one way to expose this bug.  This is a distinctly different bug.

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2007-10-19 21:02:47 UTC
It is getting stuck at nfssvc.c:96 during the write() call.

(gdb) bt
#0  0x00002aaaaaf90e80 in __write_nocancel () from /lib64/libc.so.6
#1  0x00002aaaaaaacb18 in nfssvc (port=<value optimized out>, nrservs=8,
versbits=4294967295, protobits=4294967295, haddr=0x2aaaaaccb560 "") at
#2  0x00002aaaaaaac53d in main (argc=2, argv=<value optimized out>) at nfsd.c:161

94        if (udpfd >= 0) {
95                snprintf(buf, BUFSIZ,"%d\n", udpfd);
96                if (write(fd, buf, strlen(buf)) != strlen(buf)) {

How long is "forever" :-)

In my testing I have to wait about 5 to 7 mins but 
eventually I get a timeout after a ton of 

    rpcbind: server localhost not responding, timed out
    RPC: failed to contact local rpcbind server (errno 5).
in /var/log/messages. Are you seeing these log entries?
