Description pzz 1999-11-20 13:00:25 UTC
rpc.lockd fails to start. On startup it prints the message
    lockdsvc: Invalid argument
and dies.

Are you using RedHat's kernel, or a custom kernel?

If custom, I'd bet it's missing the compile-time support for kernel-nfs.  Only
if the option "Prompt for development drivers" is checked under "Code maturity
options", then you'll be able to enable the "NFS server support" option
under "Network File Systems".

Comment 2 pzz 1999-12-04 22:29:59 UTC
I use the custom kernel (2.2.13) but I've turned on "Prompt for development
drivers" as well as "NFS server support".

Comment 3 Shannon Hill 2000-01-05 15:20:59 UTC
I have this same exact problem when trying
to build/run the 2.2.13 kernel with rh6.1
I have "Prompt for development drivers" ON.
I've tried both built-in and modular nfs
server support.  "Work like SUN" I've always
left ON.

Still, when I try to invoke rpc.lockd, it fails
with "Invalid Argument".  Does the stock rh6.1
kernel (2.2.12-20) have patches applied to it
that are not in the main line of kernel development?

Why does rpc.lockd work fine with 2.2.12-20 and fail
with 2.2.13?

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-08 04:30:35 UTC
This is not a problem with newer NFS code; the kernel will start lockd
automatically when needed (in fact, the rawhide nfs-utils init script
only starts statd.)
