Comment 16 for bug 573919

If you look in /etc/init/portmap.conf you will see that its prerequisite for starting is statd which is done in /etc/init/portmap.conf. However, there are numerous errors in my /var/log/boot.log file.

I upgraded two machines and both have the same issue as mentioned above. A new install I did does not have this issue, so it obviously is some config issues that is going badly when upgrading.

I was originally fixing this issue by stopping then starting portmap again. (A restart didn't work.)

I have found this in my /var/log/boot.log file:
