Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 625394
system-config-bind is IPV6 broken
Last modified: 2011-06-28 10:24:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot create any user defined (either dynamic or static) IPV6 PTR Zone but 0::/128
Cannot manually setup any IPV6 mask (only predefined 128 is allowed)
Cannot add any AAAA record to any user defined TRANSFER zone
Cannot add any IPV6 PTR record
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Never worked was already broken FEDORA 12 and is FEDORA 13 broken still
Any attempt to modify the files to add such record or zone) out of system-config-bind (even with named daemon down) leads to crash of system-config-bind a last when it not corrupts db files (text) known by system-config-bind
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a zone example.mydomain
2. Add a A record myhost.example.mydomain
3. Add a AAAA record for same host
1. Create IPV6 reverse Zone with any less than 128 mask (e.g. 64 in my own case)
Nothing created, displaying corrupted (some zones seem to have disappeared)
Possibly corrupted (empty file) transfer zone file (the one you try to add a AAAA record)
Being able to manage IPV6 stuff naturally
webmin does the job (but heavy load on old computer like mine) why doesn't system-config-bind ?
It's broken also on F14
But I created them manually, now system-config-bind crashes when you open it.
You mentioned webmin is this in the repos?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
