Messages while booting RHEL5......


Hi frndzz....

I'm running RHEL5. Everything is well with my system. However, when I boot the system it sits there for few minutes.

The messages are below:

Turning On allow_ypbind SELinux boolean...
Binding NIS Domain...
Turning Off allow_ypbind SELinux boolean...

I have went to single user mode and and issued the command:

chkconfig bind off
chkconfig nfs off

However, the issue still persists.....

How to find out whether SELinux is in enabled or in permissive mode.

How to disable SELinux...

Most importantly how do I get rid of the above messages and boot it normally...

any suggestions will be appreciated.......

chkconfig ypbind off
*if* your system is not part of NIS.

Indeed:

ypbind = NIS
bind = DNS
nfs = NFS

be sure which services you need before turning them off or on. If 'on' then check firewall/iptables settings and tcp wrappers (hosts.allow, hosts.deny) if being used.
