Description Rob Kearey 2004-12-22 21:44:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040929

Description of problem:
When running sysreport on a AS2.1-U6 machine, it hangs at the following:

Collecting host resolution information                     [  OK  ]
Collecting information about the nameserver (named.conf)   [  OK  ]
Collecting information about the nameserver (/)/bin/cp: will not create hard link `/tmp/sysreport.4296/proc/tty/driver' to directory `/tmp/sysreport.4296/proc/tty/driver'
/bin/cp: reading `/proc/sys/net/ipv4/route/flush': Invalid argument
/bin/cp: reading `/proc/sysrq-trigger': Invalid argument

Sysreport is sleeping from then on, stuck on a read(...). No further activity occurs. ctrl-c is required, and the sysreport is incomplete.

cat /proc/version
