I have a problem where nfs failed. 2 units fail to start


   systemctl status rpc-statd

  rpc.statd[736]: Version 1.3.2 starting
  rpc.statd[736]: Flags: TI-RPC
  rpc.statd[736]: Running as root.  chown /var/lib/nfs to choose 
different user
  rpc.statd[736]: failed to create RPC listeners, exiting
  systemd[1]: rpc-statd.service: control process exited, code=exited 
  systemd[1]: Failed to start NFS status monitor for NFSv2/3 locking..
  systemd[1]: Unit rpc-statd.service entered failed state.
systemd[1]: rpc-statd.service failed.

  I am unable to start this by hand either - continues to fail same way. 
I had seen this once a month or so back - but was able to start it by 
hand after machine was up.


   systemctl-status nfs-server

   Machine is fully updated from testing repo. I did try kernel 3.19.rc6 
but it does not help.

nfs-utils 1.3.2-1
linux 3.18.5-1
rpcbind 0.2.2-1

Really appreciate some help - this is my main nfs server and I can no 
longer get it working ...

Thanks for any advice.
