I am having trouble getting NFS up and running on a Model 530 running AIX
3.1, and I have traced this back to the following problem: it seems that
none of my RPC daemons are able to register with the portmap daemon.
For instance, when I start up rpc.statd, I periodically get "cannot
register" error messages on the console. I have tried to write a
test program which simply calls registerrpc(3), and it hangs on this call.
I have tried almost all possible combinations of starting portmap, inetd and
other such daemons, with or without the startsrc method. Whatever I do,
the "rpcinfo -p" command always returns that only the portmapper service
is registered. Does anyone have an idea as to what may be happening?
Thanks in advance,
