Almost always

When disabling IPv6 kernel-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5 also works fine:

    - Add the follwing entries to /etc/modprobe.conf:

      alias net-pf-10 off
      alias ipv6 off

    - chkconfig ip6tables off

Comment 3 Neil Horman 2009-04-07 20:05:36 UTC
can you try the 5.3 kernel (kernel-2.6.9-128.el5)?

I think this might be a dup of bz450855.  That was fixed in -99, correcting an unbalanced reference count which, if leaked, could result in this behavior

Comment 4 Neil Horman 2009-04-16 10:49:03 UTC
ping?  Any results on 5.3 testing?

Comment 5 Juanjo Villaplana 2009-04-20 12:26:20 UTC
I will try to test kernel-2.6.9-128.el5 this week ...

Comment 6 Neil Horman 2009-04-20 13:49:10 UTC
Ok, please report results as soon as you have them.  Thank you!

Comment 7 Neil Horman 2009-05-18 14:25:40 UTC
ping, any update?

Comment 8 Juanjo Villaplana 2009-06-03 08:35:42 UTC
Tested with kernel 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5:

1. Removed net-pf-10 and ipv6 entries from /etc/modprobe.conf
2. Started ip6tables
3. Issued several 'service network restart' and all worked fine
4. Restarted the server.
5. Issued several 'service network restart' and all worked fine

The issue seems to be solved. Thanks!

Comment 9 Neil Horman 2009-06-03 10:45:14 UTC
