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):
Steps to Reproduce:
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.
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.
