Description AJ Guillon 2011-04-29 03:24:25 UTC
Description of problem:

I am attempting to setup Directory 389 in a pure ipv6 environment.  I have added an ldap host (with an AAAA record only) to bind that I will just call "example.com".  During the execution of the setup script, I get to the stage:

Computer name [xxx.com]: example.com

WARNING: There are problems with the hostname.
Could not find an address for hostname 'example.com'.

It looks to me that the script is only searching for ipv4 hosts, and since I'm in a pure ipv6 environment nothing is found.  I can ping6 example.com with no issues, and dig shows everything is working just fine.

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

How reproducible:

Have run the script twice, results are the same.  Setup fails at the end when the host cannot be found.  Have only attempted on one machine, since it seems pretty clear to me what the problem is.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup machine with ipv6 address only
2. Attempt setup with this machine
3. See bug.
Actual results:


Expected results:
