Or /var/lib/nfs/statd does not exist on your system, or it is not
writable by the uid rpc.statd runs under (rpcuser on Red Hat boxes
with all the upgrades).

I've had this problem myself, I don't think it's covered in the FAQ.

I haven't checked if the rpcuser thing is a redhat-ism, probably is,
their script is not doing anything special with rpc.statd so they
must have hacked it into the executable.


It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
than to open it and remove all doubt.
