Running Bacula on a system where IPv6 was disabled in the kernel yields
lot of errors:
> # bconsole
> Connecting to Director localhost:9101
> bconsole: bsock.c:227-0 Socket open error. proto=28 port=9101. ERR=Protocol not supported
> *autodisplay on
> *status client
> 12-Apr 17:34 martin-xxx JobId 0: Error: bsock.c:225 Socket open error. proto=28 port=9102. ERR=Protocol not supported
While these are harmless, any succesful job will report:
> Termination: Backup OK -- with warnings
This can lead to overlooking more serious problems.
Solving it all is as easy as adding "--disable-ipv6" to CONFIGURE_ARGS.
I'm reporting this hoping it will help others, but I also ask: can we
have an option to disable IPv6, like many other ports have?
bye & Thanks
