Description of problem:
I have installed RedHat 9 on 2 Dell PowerEdge 1650s and 2 PowerEdge 2650s. They
have twin-P3 and twin-Xeon processors respectively. The Xeons have
hyperthreading enabled. If i limit bind to one processor only it does not hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 9 on a Dell PowerEdge 2650
2. Install bind
3. Start bind
Actual Results: bind runs for about 10 seconds then hangs. One can not obtain
the daemon's status or perform queries on it.
Expected Results: It should not hang.
Can you try this with 9-2-2 version on RawHide to see if the problem is fixed.
Thanks for the update... I'm afraid I cannot as all our twin-xeon servers are
now in production :(
If it's in production, that's an extra reason to go ahead in upgrade to 9.2.2
as it has security bugfixes. I'm using it in production and it works great.
How do I install it on Red Hat 9, bearing in mind it fails dependancy checks?
Never mind, used --nodeps.
This seems to have fixed it. It has been up a minute now with no hanging.
One minute is good enough for me. :^) Reopen bug if it returns.
Thanks! Still going with no problems :)
