Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 414471
after recent updates rpc stopped working completely with ipv4
Last modified: 2008-01-11 17:15:42 EST
Description of problem:
$ rpcinfo -p chemserv
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Unknown host
RPC services don't work at all anymore. If I remove ipv4 from /etc/netconfig,
everything starts working again.
I have attached strace from rpcinfo -p <servername> which always
returns unknown host if ipv6 appears in /etc/netconfig.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 8 RPC
Update to latest Fedora 8 (and 7 seems to be affected as well)
Created attachment 280061 [details]
Failed rpcinfo -o <server> with ipv6 in netconfig
Created attachment 280071 [details]
ipv6 removed - everything works again
OK - this was not as bad as I thought first. The services seem to work.
Just rpcinfo doesn't.
