Hi

The following errors occur when I use kernel 2.6.18-92.1.6.el5 but not with
kernel 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5, with no change to any conf files when I switch
kernels. I am running RHEL 5.

I am a newbie and apologize in advance if this is the wrong place to ask
this question or if this message contains inadequate information. Please
advise.

The problem is that when the nfs service starts I get the following error
message on my nis clients (again this is only with kernel 2.6.18-92.1.6 and
not 2.6.18-53.1.21)

[root@chinook init.d]# service nfs start
Starting NFS services: [ OK ]
Starting NFS quotas: yp_all: clnt_call: RPC: Timed out

[ OK ]


This occurs when the system is booting or if I stop and then start the
service.

No messages relevant to this error appear in /var/log/messages

No matter which kernel starts yp is appropriately bound to the NIS server
ypwhich returns the name of the server and ypcat passwd returns the
passwords.

RPC appears to be running correctly

[root@chinook ~]# rpcinfo -u localhost ypbind

ypdomainname, nisdomainname, hostname all return appropriate values, which
are not different between kernels.

Searching google returned a suggestion to change the file limits > ulimit -n
256, but this does not resolve the error.

I am running the following versions of programs (of course these do not
change when switching kernels)
ypbind-1.19-8.el5
yp-tools-2.9-0.1
nfs-utils-1.0.9-33.el5
nfs-utils-lib-1.0.8-7.2.z2
nfs4-acl-tools-0.3.1-1.el5.1


Please CC me on any replies.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is driving me crazy.
