We had a simple (but quite drammatic) issue the other day. Our
backup script simply does a cold backup of the 389 Directory Server,
however this time it didn't start back up.
Script simply runs: /etc/init.d/ipa stop
Error from Log:
[31/Jul/2012:02:00:38 +1000] - slapd stopped.
[31/Jul/2012:02:00:43 +1000] createprlistensockets - PR_Bind() on
Interfaces port 636 failed: Netscape Portable Runtime error -5982
Network address is in use.)
Is there anyway to work out why this happened?
Is this an IPA issue that is known about?
When I did a manual restart in the morning it was fine. The backups
even worked perfectly last night too. Sounds like a bug in the ipa
How long is a delay between slapd shutdown and restart? Sometimes there is
time window (after process shutdown) in which port cannot be occupied again,
I'm unsure why. (My guess: It is related to improperly closed TCP connections
and some timers in TCP/IP stack...)
"netstat" may or may not give you some clue to what is wrong.
You can check ports in listening state with command:
$ sudo netstat -lpt
It should show currently running processes and TCP ports occupied by them.
$ sudo netstat -ta
This command should show all TCP connections (including connections in
intermediate states) with process to which they belong.
