[Linux-ha-dev] Occasionally heartbeat doesn't start...

I've been investigating an HA configuration for a customer. One time in
testing heartbeat didn't start, because rpcbind had stolen its reserved
port. Restarting rpcbind made it choose a different random port. This
is definitely an interesting problem - even if it doesn't happen very often.
The best solution to this, AFAIK is to make a file
/etc/portreserve/heartbeat with this one line in it:
and then add portrelease heartbeat to the init script.
