/var/log/secure shows it can't bind:-

/var/log/messages shows it exiting ?:-

Yet when I login I can restart sshd.service and it will bind to port 22 on 192.168.191.9 and keeps running.

No firewall is running and selinux is in permissive mode
It is not the fastest machine Atlon 1200+ 1GB RAM
Kernel 3.4.0-1.fc17.i686 #1 SMP

Its my backup server and I need sshd running if it was remote I would be scuppered !

Why is it failing to bind to the IP address on startup ?

I wonder if this has to do with timing. Perhaps on bootup the DNS does not resolve the IP address fast enough and SSHD would not start without knowing the host's FQDN? Just a guess but I have seen things like that.
