svc: failed to register lockdv1 RPC service (errno 97).

When I tried to start ‘nfs-kernel-server’, it failed.

# /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
Exporting directories for NFS kernel daemon....
Starting NFS kernel daemon: nfsd svcgssd failed!

If you have DNS server running, make sure you remove the following lines from /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1 nasbox localhost
::1 nasbox localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback

However, if you don’t have DNS server running to manage your domain then you need to explicitly assign the IP address to the domain. Adjust the IP address and hostname to your environment:

#192.168.1.123 nasbox.myserver.com nasbox

In my case, I could successfully start nfs-kernel-server:

# /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
