Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 865462
IPv6 address cannot be specified within the cluster configuration with upper case letters
Last modified: 2013-09-30 18:36:30 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to use a ipv6 address in the cluster configuration, when activated
it returns an error:
Oct 2 16:06:49 server clurgmgrd: <notice> start on ip "FC00:0000:0000:0000:0:0:0:150/64" returned 1 (generic error)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure in the cluster an ipv6 address all upper case
2. Try to start the service with the IP
The service fails.
The IP should be set independently of upper/lower case
The RFC http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4291 permits both lower and upper cases.
