Description Gene Czarcinski 2012-09-12 07:55:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Two instances of the radvd process is started when a virtual IPv6 network is started.  The two processes have identical command line parameters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.define a virtual network device with an IPv6 definition.
2.start the device
3.ps ax | grep radvd
Actual results:
two instances of radvd

Expected results:
only one instance

Additional info:
I am not sure if this is doing harm or not.  Note that if two IPv6 networks are started there are now 4 radvd processes.

I believe that this started with 0.10.0 but I first noticed it running 0.10.1.

This is not a bug but must be a radvd feature.  When you start the radvd.service you get two copied=s too.
