Network test failure in RHEL4
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:24:11 EDT
Description of problem:
This is an issue which is faced with Certification testing for RHEL 4.0.
It is the NETWORK TEST which is failing. We have run this test in almost three
systems with three different
Motherboards. We find the similar failure in all.
We find 3 types of failure:
1. When we run the test with all the services started (network, httpd, nfs,
portmap),We find the log1 where the test is stopping with âmountâ comment (in
udp test) with an error message as
PERMISSION DENIED BY server
2. When we run the test with all the services started (network, httpd, nfs,
portmap),We find the log2 where the test is stopping with âmountâ comment (in
udp test) with an error message as
CONNECTION CLOSED BY server.
3. When we run the test with all the services started (network, httpd, nfs,
portmap),We find the log3 where the test is stopping with âsshâ comment (in tcp
test) an error message as
READ FROM REMOTE HOST server: Connection reset by peer^M
I have taken the test suite from
server denotes ipaddress of the server.
How can I resolve these issues and How can the test be run successfully?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): -
How reproducible: Run the Network test as per the procedure
Steps to Reproduce:
1.The System Under test loaded with RHEL 4.0
2.A Server machine with the same OS as required by the Network test
3.Run the Network Test, with LAN connection between these two machines and all
Actual results: attached log files explain
Expected results: The test should pass
At each run of the test, we face similar issues often. Produced to you is the
3 very frequently faced issue with Network test.
The test is done in the usual manner with rhr rpm file , not with ispec

Can you successfully ssh as root from the test machine to the server without a
password? You need to set up your keys as discussed in the documentation --

yes, I can successfully ssh as root but with password. I have not manually set
up any keys.
Please following the installation instructions for RHR, especially this page.
Closing as NOTABUG.
I find only the guidelines for certifications not the exact procedure in the
html page you informed. give me the exact (better a step-by-step procedure)
procedure for Network Test.
Also In the 3rd log I attached, the server resets when the apache benchmarking
when I gave 'ab -c 30 -k -n 2 18.104.22.168/httptest.file' it is working fine.
But when I gave 'ab -c 30 -k -n 2000 22.214.171.124/httptest.file' (which is
available in tcp_test), it is displaying an error message as:
CONNECTION RESET BY 126.96.36.199(SERVER IP)
The following is cut and pasted from the link pasted above.
As root on the iSpec server, append the file redhatready2_id_dsa.pub to your
.ssh/authorized_keys file. You can find the key in /etc/sysconfig/. If the
.ssh/authorized_keys file and/or directory does not exist in /root/, create it.
bash# mkdir -p /root/.ssh
bash# chmod 700 /root/.ssh
bash# cat /etc/sysconfig/redhatready2_id_dsa.pub >> root/.ssh/authorized_keys
Verify that you have set up your keys correctly by ssh'ing into the iSpec server
from another machine that has the redhatready2_id_dsa key installed.
bash# ssh -i /etc/sysconfig/redhatready_id_dsa ispec.server.company.com
If you have correctly set up your keys, you should not need to type in the root
Previously I did not use ispec method of testing. I used only the old RHR
method for my testing.
But now I tried with ispec testing. I was able to set keys & it is not asking
But still I face a problem : I find no trees in Distribution trees list.
I mounted all the iso files as per the document.
How should I find trees in Distribution Trees list?
All my issues in network test was solved using the rhr2-1.0-17beta.noarch.rpm
