Description of problem:
When IPv6 is disabled using recommended method:
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
ipa-server-upgrade fails trying to connect to port 8080 tcp on ::1 and time out (Checking if a service was started)
Failed to connect to port 8080 tcp on ::1
Reenabling IPv6 solves the upgrade, but if it is disabled again after upgrade, ipactl start fails with long wait times too and related services don't start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always when IPv6 is disabled
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disable IPv6
2. run ips-server-upgrade
According to https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Linux_Domain_Identity_Authentication_and_Policy_Guide/installing-ipa.html#prerequisites
IPv6 must be enabled on the system.

Fair, but it could be better to detect it and show a message. I know rpm updates should run unattended, but printing a message about how the IPA installation will not be upgraded and will remain down until IPV6 is reenabled and ipa-server-upgrade is run again could help a lot.
This case was a small customer that when the updated was installed was dumbfounded to find the server not working at all, did not understood the problem with the long timeouts.
Upgrade now checks for IPv6
