Description Matthew Booth 2006-11-26 17:24:16 EST
Description of problem:
/etc/init.d/dhcp6s contains the line:
[ -f /etc/server6_addr.conf ] || exit 0

server6_addr.conf is not documented anywhere. An example exists in
/usr/share/doc/dhcpv6-0.10/server6_addr.conf. It seems suspiciously similar to
dhcp6s.conf, leading me to suspect that it was deprecated in favour of
dhcp6s.conf. It is not referenced anywhere else in any config file or binary:

[root@mbooth ~]# rpm -ql dhcpv6 | xargs grep server6_addr
/etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp6s:[ -f /etc/server6_addr.conf ] || exit 0

Removing the above line causes dhcp6s to function normally.

Fixed in dhcpv6-0.10-15_EL4 and rawhide.  Setting some flags to see what happens.

Comment 3 James Laska 2006-12-14 09:37:21 EST
This bug is filed against RHEL 4.4 ... but using RHEL5 flags.

Please use a separate bug for each product.
Comment 4 Ken Reilly 2006-12-14 18:18:16 EST
Reset the RHEL 5.0.0 flag to " " so this is tracked against the correct release.
And, I set the status to MODIFIED based on Comment #1. 

I'll leave it to the reporter and/or maintainer to open a separate bug for
RHEL5.0.0, if need be. 
Comment 5 David Cantrell 2006-12-15 11:41:54 EST
Like #217308, I confused myself with this one and thought it was RHEL5 and not
RHEL4 and had all the flags to do stuff with it, so it's been fixed in RHEL5.

Cloning so it can be tracked for RHEL5.
