       rpcbind - universal addresses to RPC program number mapper

       is a server that converts RPC program numbers into universal addresses.
       It must be running on the host to be able to make RPC calls on a server
       on that machine.

       When  an	 RPC  service  is started, it tells the address at which it is
       listening, and the RPC program numbers it is prepared to serve.	When a
       client  wishes  to make an RPC call to a given program number, it first
       contacts on the server machine  to  determine  the  address  where  RPC
       requests should be sent.

       should be started before any other RPC service.	Normally, standard RPC
       servers are started by port monitors, so must be	 started  before  port
       monitors are invoked.

       When  is	 started,  it  checks that certain name-to-address translation
       calls function correctly.  If  they  fail,  the	network	 configuration
       databases may be corrupt.  Since RPC services cannot function correctly
       in this situation, reports the condition and terminates.

       can only be started by the super-user.

       recognizes the following options:

	      Run in debug mode.
			In this mode, will not fork when it starts, will print
			additional  information	 during	 operation,  and  will
			abort on certain errors.  With this option, the	 name-
			to-address translation consistency checks are shown in

	      Do a warm start.
			If aborts or terminates on or it will write  the  cur‐
			rent  list of registered services to and Starting with
			the option instructs it to look for  these  files  and
			start  operation with the registrations found in them.
			This allows to resume operation without requiring  all
			RPC services to be restarted.

       Terminating with will prevent the warm-start files from being written.

       All  RPC servers must be restarted if the following occurs: crashes (or
