Exclamation NFS statd won't start


Yesterday the server which is running Red Hat 7.3 ran an update for Direct Admin which is a web hosting control panel. While it was starting this is what happened:

Loading system font: [ OK ]
Initializing random number generator: [ OK ]
-Nothing happens after the random number generator process, it just does nothing. I then pressed Ctrl + Alt + Del and got:

INIT: Switch to runlevel: 6
INIT: Sending processes the TERM Signal
Saving random speed: [ OK ]
Stopping NFS Statd: [ FAILED ]
Stopping portmapper: /etc/rcb.d/K87portmap: kill: (488) - No such process
Shutting down kernel logger: [ OK ]
Shutting down system logger: [ OK ]
Starting killall: [ OK ]
Sending all processes the TERM signal... [ OK ]
Sending all processes the KILL Signal... md: recovery thread got woken up... md: recovery thread finished....
[ OK ]
Syncing hardware clock to system time [ OK ]
modprobe:modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0

Question: Why is the server not processing the other services.

there might be some problem in ur random daemon, responsible for random number generation
if u have RH cd, boot from the cd in rescue mode.
then go to /etc/rc.d/ directory and
find out the file Sxxrandom(here xx is any number, in my case 20) in all the rc directories specially in rc3.d and rc5.d.

now u have to see whether this file is okay or not, if u r unable to find anything, temporay solution is to stop the service by
moving this file to Kxxrandom, an
e.g, mv S20random K20random
and restart the comp
