RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Leon Fauster 2022-01-21 11:30:13 UTC
Description of problem:

Jan 21 12:05:42 new.localdomain systemd-sysctl[1290]: Couldn't write '0 2147483647' to '-net/ipv4/ping_group_range', ignoring: No such file or directory

The minus sign as typo?

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

# rpm -qf /usr/lib/sysctl.d/50-default.conf

How reproducible:

# grep group /usr/lib/sysctl.d/50-default.conf
-net.ipv4.ping_group_range = 0 2147483647

# reboot


# journalctl -b |grep group_range

Comment 1 Frantisek Sumsal 2022-01-21 11:48:06 UTC
Nope, that's not a typo, '-' means any errors are ignored if we couldn't set the respective value (which is required, in this case, otherwise the systemd-sysctl.service fails under certain container solutions). Unfortunately, it turns out we're missing a couple of patches in RHEL 8 to support that functionality - a solution is currently under investigation.
