Description Amit Saha 2014-01-29 22:57:03 UTC
Description of problem:

BZ#810893 added the support for running tests in an IPv6 only environment. However, it assumes that IPv4 is always available, which may not be the case if there is a recipe which has a task after the task which disables IPv6. Hence, in the absence of IPv4 the beah services which are started per task fails to start.

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

Beah 0.7.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

This will also of course need the ability to first communicate with the task library correctly over IPv6, but we must fix this from Beah's side of things.

Comment 2 Dan Callaghan 2014-02-11 04:24:23 UTC
On Gerrit:

Verified that jobs still proceed when all IPv4 addresses are deleted (including assuming that all the necessary hostnames are resolvable using either /etc/hosts or a DNS server reachable over IPv6.
