Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6437
ypserv (or something related) hangs machine
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
After installing 6.1, I enabled ypserv and ypbind as normal
to setup my machine as an NIS server. Now, when I reboot,
everything seems fine until the last step of initialization
"starting linuxconf" which seems to take a long time to
finish. After that, the machine slows to a crawl. Logging
in takes a minute or so during which I get the message:
yp_all: clnt_call: RPC: Timed out
Try restarting ypbind.
Hmm... is portmap running?
Also, are you using yourself as a ypserver?
(also, are you using the errata ypserv?)
closed dues to lack of feedback
