Description Ian Mortimer 2003-02-26 00:40:28 UTC

Description of problem:
Not sure if this is a problem with the rquotad server or elsewhere in the rpc
code (glibc?).  After a reboot of an nfs and print server for a small network,
cups failed to start because rpc.rquotad was already using tcp port 631 (ipp).

I reproduced this on a non-production box like this:

   while : ; do service nfs restart; rpcinfo -p | grep -qw 'tcp *631' && break; done

Eventually rpc.rquotad got tcp port 631.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Stop cups
2.restart nfs repeatedly as shown above
3.check rpc ports with rpcinfo -p

Actual Results:  rpc.rquotad grabs tcp port 631 which will stop cups from starting.

Expected Results:  No rpc services should use port 631 since it is required by cups.

Additional info:

nfs starts before cups (by default) which means that randomly cups will fail to
start on a box which is both an nfs server and a cups server.
