Description Bjorn Hansson 2011-09-14 10:13:54 UTC
Description of problem:

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install package ipvsadm
2. Run "ipvsadm -A -t [fc00::1]:80"

Actual results:
Error message "Operation not supported with specified address family"

Expected results:
Virtual service should be added for IPv6, as for IPv4, ie. "ipvsadm -A -t" works as expected.

Additional info:

This is not a limitation in the userland tool, as ipvsadm 1.26 should support IPv6 just fine. I had a quick look at my Fedora kernel's configuration, and this seems to be the "problem":

# CONFIG_IP_VS_IPV6 is not set

The IPv6 support for LVS isn't enabled in the kernel. Reassigning to the kernel component, as that's where the change needs to happen for it to work.

Ok, I've enabled this in rawhide and f16.  Should be available in the next build. Please cc or assign me to ipvs on ipv6 bugs that come in.  Thanks!
