Description Victor Sudakov 2007-03-29 04:10:04 UTC
If a system is configured as a NIS client, running /etc/netstart in
single user mode produces weird effects, like "ls -alR /" hanging forever.
The possible reason is that the system is trying to perform a NIS lookup
and fails because rpcbind is not started.


Workaround: after running /etc/netstart, run "/etc/rc.d/rpcbind start"
How-To-Repeat: 1. Configure a system as a NIS client, with NIS lookups for group and passwd.
2. Boot in single user mode
3. mount -a ; /etc/netstart 
4. "ls -alR /" may hang forever
