Configuring "sunrpc.tcp_max_slot_table_entries" in the /etc/sysctl.conf are not persistent after a reboot. 
They can be set after boot-up by using "sysctl -p" which will read the settings from /etc/sysctl.conf and set them properly. 

error systemd-sysctl[941]: Couldn't write '128' to 'sunrpc/tcp_slot_table_entries', ignoring: No such file or directory.


Load the sunrpc kernel module earlier in the boot process.
# echo sunrpc > /etc/modules-load.d/sunrpc.conf
Reboot and test to make sure settings were persistent.


The sunrpc kernel module is not loaded when the systemd-sysctl service is started.
