Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 812501
ypbind not registered with rpcbind
Last modified: 2012-04-27 01:50:43 EDT
Description of problem:
ypbind is seems to start before rpcbind
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Three out of four systems restarted with this issue.
Steps to Reproduce:
systemctl restart ypbind.service; corrects the issue but deadly if offsite and remote root access not allowed.
Could you attach output of dmesg to see ordering of services and systemd events during boot? To do so, boot with "log_buf_len=1M systemd.log_level=debug systemd.log_target=kmsg".

dmesg log from booting system that has ypbind-rpcbind problem
We were having the same bug:
--ypbind not registered with rpcbind at boot (although ypbind seems to be running)
--systemctl restart ypbind.service makes it work
--yum downgrade fixes the problem.
I followed the instructions to log systemd messages. This is the dmesg file that comes out.
The next file will be the /var/log/messages from the same boot.

/var/log/messages file that corresponds to dmesg file
This is the /var/log/messages file that corresponds to the dmesg file just attached. It starts with the current boot. (The weird times--2000 seconds for rpcbind work---comes from the BIOS time being wrong, and fixed by ntpd.)

use proper DBus message string
The problem is probably in communication with NetworkManager. A wrong constant is used for listening on DBus, so ypbind don't notice network is ready and waits for a connection forever.
