Description Yann Droneaud 2011-10-08 15:36:18 EDT
During boot, 

[    9.415168] systemd[1]: var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount mount process exited, code=exited status=32
Comment 1 Michal Schmidt 2011-10-09 20:28:03 EDT
It reports an error, but /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs actually gets mounted, doesn't it?

The bug is reproducible by booting into "emergency" and running:
 mount sunrpc /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs -t rpc_pipefs
You'll get:
 mount: sunrpc already mounted ...

The culprit is the sunrpc rule in /etc/modprobe.d/dist.conf, which mounts the rpc_pipefs filesystem, so in the end the same mount is attempted twice.

Moving to module-init-tools. This is related to bug 695375.
Comment 2 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2011-10-21 07:51:45 EDT
I've the same problem in fc16.
The sevices proc-fs-nfsd.mount and nfs-server.service doesn't start in the begining of the boot process.
After the system ist started proc-fs-nfsd.mount is aktiv but nfs-server.service is not aktiv.
At this point i can start nfs-server.service with:
'systemctl start nfs-server.service'

I read bug 695375 an comment out this lines in /etc/modprobe.d/dist.conf.

#install nfsd /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install nfsd && { /bin/mount -t nfsd nfsd /proc/fs/nfsd > /dev/null 2>&1 || :; }
#install sunrpc /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install sunrpc && { /bin/mount -t rpc_pipefs sunrpc /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs > /dev/null 2>&1 || :; }

Now i've got no errors during the boot process and nfs-server.service is activ after the systen is started.

But this can be a permanent solution?

I see you already removed dist.conf completely in Rawhide. It is perhaps not safe to do the same in F16 at this point, but could you please remove at least these two lines? They cause actual harm to nfs-server.service.
Comment 4 Andrew McNabb 2011-10-28 19:31:22 EDT
I believe I may be experiencing this problem. As a result, the idmapd service fails to start at boot:

Starting RPC Pipe File System ESC[1;31mfailedESC[0m, see 'systemctl status var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount' for details.
Starting NFSv4 ID-name mapping daemon ESC[1;31mabortedESC[0m because a dependency failed.

Present on F16 RC1 during boot - 

Oct 29 12:43:55 localhost rpcbind: Cannot open '/var/lib/rpcbind/rpcbind.xdr' file for reading, errno 2 (No such file or directory)
Oct 29 12:43:55 localhost rpcbind: Cannot open '/var/lib/rpcbind/portmap.xdr' file for reading, errno 2 (No such file or directory)
Comment 7 Richard Marko 2011-10-29 06:44:34 EDT
Is this F16 blocker?
  "All services in a default install must start properly"

nfs-idmap.service is not started because of dependency failure
Comment 8 Andrew McNabb 2011-10-29 17:33:49 EDT
I agree with Richard this should qualify as a blocker. This bug prevents a user whose home directory is on NFS from successfully logging in.
Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2011-10-29 18:00:12 EDT
the bug isn't a blocker per that criterion as nfs-idmap.service is not enabled out of the box, but preventing a user whose home directory is on NFS from logging in sounds like a serious impact. Is that truly the exact description or should it read "This bug prevents a user whose home directory is on NFSv4 from successfully logging in."?

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2011-10-29 18:02:35 EDT
hum, scratch that, nfs-idmap.service is enabled by default. so that would make this a blocker per the criteria.
Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2011-10-29 18:13:59 EDT
I guess we should drop the matching 'remove' lines as systemd should take care of that also?
Comment 12 Adam Williamson 2011-10-29 18:36:17 EDT
Fix building at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=3472733 . Tested locally, worked.

Comment 13 Jared Smith 2011-10-29 18:44:14 EDT
Looks like a blocker to me: +1 Blocker
Comment 14 Fedora Update System 2011-10-29 18:45:21 EDT
module-init-tools-3.16-3.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
Comment 15 Adam Williamson 2011-10-29 18:47:39 EDT
as it's the weekend and we need to move fast, marking AcceptedBlocker with just mine and jared's vote.

Reporters, can you please test the fix asap - and I mean *asap*, like within the next hour would be nice - and add karma? We need to push the update and spin RC2 as fast as possible. Thanks!

Assigning to me, since I did the fix.

Comment 16 Adam Williamson 2011-10-29 19:18:27 EDT
I think there's a degree of raciness about this, as it definitely affected my laptop, but doesn't affect a fresh VM install I just did.
Comment 17 Wolfgang Ulbrich 2011-10-29 19:29:00 EDT
After updating to module-init-tools-3.16-3.fc16 and enable all nfs services systemd give me that feedback.

systemctl list-units
nfs-idmap.service   loaded active    running         NFSv4 ID-name mapping daemon
nfs-lock.service    loaded active     running         NFS file locking service.
nfs-secure-server.service    loaded failed     failed          Secure NFS Server

[root@mother rave]# systemctl status nfs-secure-server.service

	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/nfs-secure-server.service

Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.

Only nfs-secure-server.service doesn't start, but maybe it's a configuration prob, because i don't need this service normaly and it's not a defauft start services.
So ihmo it's not a f16 blocker anymore.

Thanks. Can you add karma to the update? Log in before filing karma so it gets counted. thanks for testing!

module-init-tools-3.16-3.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 20 Andrew McNabb 2011-10-30 01:26:39 EDT
I know that it's already been pushed to stable, but better late than never. I've tested the new package, and it seems to fix the problem. Thanks for addressing this so quickly.
