How to Start / Restart rpcbind
- Determine the PID for rpcbind.Run ps to get the PID, which is the value in the second column.
# ps -ef |grep rpcbind
root 188 1 0 Aug 31 ? 0:14 /usr/sbin/rpcbind
- Send a SIGTERM signal to the rpcbind process.In this example, term is the signal that is to be sent and 188 is the PID for the program. This command causesrpcbind to create a list of the current registered services in /tmp/portmap.file and /tmp/rpcbind.file.
# kill -s term 188
Note –If you do not kill the rpcbind process with the -s term option, you cannot complete a warm start of rpcbind. You must reboot the server to restore service.
- Restart rpcbind.Warm-restart the command so that the files that were created by the kill command are consulted. A warm start also ensures that the process resumes without requiring a restart of all the RPC services.
# /usr/sbin/rpcbind -w
