vnc reports wrong ip address under anaconda vnc install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
This is an odd one as I have 1 system where I see it and one where I don't.
Doing a rawhide vnc install on ia64 I have a system who's ip address is
10.12.11.11 however when anaconda starts vnc it reports the ip wrong:
The VNC server is now running.
Please connect to 126.96.36.199:1 to begin the install...
Starting graphical installation...
I have verified that the system IS using the right ip address and if I point
vncviewer to the right ip I see that vnc is running just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time on one system, never on another, will try other systems
Steps to Reproduce:
1. do a vnc install and verify the ip address that is reported
These two machines are both ia64? Or you are experiencing this bug only on
both of these were ia64. Here are the differences that _might_ be why one works
and one doesn't:
using eth0 which is an e1000, ip is 10.12.11.11
using eth1 which is an e100 device, ip is 10.12.11.31
I have other systems I will try this on today to see where else it works/does
not work. All of my hardware here is ia64 but I have an x86_64 at home I can
experiment with as well possibly tomorrow.
OK, I tried this on 4 HP Integrity ia64 systems. The only one that gives the
right ip is the one that uses eth1. All the others (using eth0) give what
appears to be a random number for the ip address.
I will re-cable this to use eth0 just to confirm that is the difference. Not
sure if that gets us closer to why it is broken but bothers me that it works on
just this one! I like consistency ;)
Okay, looks like this was fixed by this:
* Fri Jul 7 2006 David Cantrell <email@example.com> - 188.8.131.52-1
- Use configured interface for VNC connections (clumens, #197721)
Re-open if not
