RSA Product/Service Type: Newport S4S Packet Hybrid
RSA Version/Condition: 10.4.x, 10.5.x
O/S Version: EL6
|Issue||When the netconfig.sh script is executed on a Newport S4S Packet Hybrid, a loopback (127.0.x.x) entry with the node's hostname is updated in the /etc/hosts file.|
This causes confusion with the installer and other programs, and results in issues with services that perform self-discovery and share addresses with other service members in a cluster such as MapR.
|Workaround||In order to resolve the issue, the /etc/hosts file must be modified to remove any entries that associate the hostname with a loopback IP address.|
You must only associate the hostname with the actual IP address of the appliance.
