Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
dhcp6s fails to start on systems with 802.1Q VLAN network interface. It expects
the names of network interfaces are something like eth0, eth1 and so. It fails
in case of 802.1Q interface names like eth0.256 or eth1.44
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Enable 802.1Q support
# grep VLAN /etc/sysconfig/network
# more /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1.44
Edit /etc/dhcp6s.conf and /etc/server6_addr.conf to use name of interface eth1.44
# service dhcp6s start
dhcp6s: syntax error in line 1: eth1.44
dhcp6s: fatal parse failure: exiting in line 1: eth1.44
dhcp6s: failed to parse addr configuration file
ps ax |grep dhcp6
5512 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/dhcp6s -c /etc/dhcp6s.conf eth1.44

This bug was reported a year ago to upstream developers, but these @#$%^ ignores it.

Expect the name of interface is string.
