nslcd dead but subsys locked


Sooooo, working on changing nslcd.conf file to reflect change to a new ldap server.
Go to restart nslcd and it loooks ok, but a service nslcd status delivers the error: nslcd dead but subsys locked

Tried to rename the /var/run/nslcd directory and create a new one with same perms/owner/grp, and same with /var/lock/subsys/nslcd
Any thoughts on why this issue is occuring?

Rhel 6.10 running on vmware 11 (I think, though I don't think vmware is the issue as other servers are ok)

Thanks!

Did the init script successfully bring down nslcd? I agree, it probably has nothing to do with VMWare.

Well, stopping/starting the service would appear to work, but changes would not actually load. A pkill nslcd goes through, then a a service nslcd status, shows the nslcd dead but subsys locked error.

nslcd dead but subsys locked isn't generated by nslcd, but by the init script's status function. It just means there is a pid file but the process isn't running. Try killing nslcd and running it in debug mode.

Code:
# service nslcd stop
Stopping nslcd:                                            [  OK  ]
# ps -ef | grep nslcd
root      1487  1381  0 06:23 pts/0    00:00:00 grep nslcd
# nslcd -d
nslcd: DEBUG: add_uri(ldap://127.0.0.1/)
nslcd: version 0.7.5 starting
nslcd: DEBUG: unlink() of /var/run/nslcd/socket failed (ignored): No such file or directory
nslcd: DEBUG: setgroups(0,NULL) done
nslcd: DEBUG: setgid(55) done
nslcd: DEBUG: setuid(65) done
nslcd: accepting connections

Well, debug mode didn't really point out anything, but it caused me to recheck selinux and find a typo in the boolean. Always with the selinux!

Thanks for the assist!
