The cause could be that your not running a portmapper daemon (e.g., portmapper, rpcbind) or that you are but the LDM isn't running with the proper privilege (the program might not be owned by root and setuid). This is most likely irrelevant, however, because almost all LDM-s use the well-known port 388 to connect to each other -- bypassing the portmapper daemon entirely. > So now I'm thinking how could that be? so i followed the old steps to check. > > /etc/rpc > ldmd 300029 ldm > > check > > /etc/services > ldm 388/udp unidata > ldm 388/tcp unidata > > check > > local0.debug .. check.. or we wouldn't have gotten the logs... > > rebooted to see if error is still there... check it is.. > > turned off the firewall to see if something is blocking tcp/udp ports... > both are open, yet the error is still there... > this did not solve the issue either > address@hidden:~/ldm-6.13.6/bin$ sudo chmod u+srwx,g+rx,o+rx ldmd > address@hidden:~/ldm-6.13.6/bin$ sudo chmod u+srwx,g+rx,o+rx hupsyslog > > what am I forgetting? Are you running a portmapper daemon? ps -ef | egrep 'portmapper|rpcbind' Many sites don't because they consider it a security risk.
