I have installed OMSA on a server and the dsm_om_connsv service is running. I have found, in the past, this always binds to an IPv6 socket only;
# netstat -lnp Active Internet connections (only servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:389 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4988/slapd tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:3306 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4901/mysqld tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4556/sshd tcp6 0 0 :::389 :::* LISTEN 4988/slapd tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN 4556/sshd tcp6 0 0 :::1311 :::* LISTEN 18536/dsm_om_connsv
Unfortunately I don't have end to end IPv6 connectivity to this particular server, so does anyone know how I can make it bind to an IPv4 socket instead? Also, why does this happen. Has Dell made OMSA favour IPv6 or has this server chosen IPv6 over IPv4 (default kernel choice perhaps)?
Many thanks for your time and help.
