Simple NFS question


I do not have nfs active but for some reason have nfslock running from bootup.

If I'm not running nfs do I need nfslock? I don't think I do but can't seem to find any docs about nfslock on its own.

My server always fails on shutdown with:

nfslock: rpc.statd shutdown failed

Perhaps this is why?

nfs.lock depends on nfs.statd. Since you are not running nfs (and nfs.statd) that is why when you try to shutdown it complains with that error. So yes, you can turn off nfs.lockd.

If you're not going to run NFS, you should also shut down


Don't forget to 'chkconfig <service> off' to make the change effective for all runlevels.

These services aren't needed, and as a general practice you should always shut down unneeded services.
