So, we already do that, Nigel took care of that (after 2 days of
research). But I didn't knew the exact symptoms, and decided to double
check just in case.
And... there is no sysctl.conf in the initrd. Running dracut -v -f do
not change anything.
Running "dracut -v -f -H" take care of that (and this fix the problem),
- our ansible script already run that
- -H is hostonly, which is already the default on EL7 according to the
However, if dracut-config-generic is installed, it doesn't build a
hostonly initrd, and so do not include the sysctl.conf file (who break
rpcbnd, who break the test suite).
And for some reason, it is installed the image in ec2 (likely default),
but not by default on the builders.
So what happen is that after a kernel upgrade, dracut rebuild a generic
initrd instead of a hostonly one, who break things. And kernel was
likely upgraded recently (and upgrade happen nightly (for some value of
"night"), so we didn't see that earlier, nor with a fresh system.
So now, we have several solution:
- be explicit on using hostonly in dracut, so this doesn't happen again
(or not for this reason)
- disable ipv6 in rpcbind in a cleaner way (to be tested)
- get the test suite work with ip v6
In the long term, I also want to monitor the processes, but for that, I
need a VPN between the nagios server and ec2, and that project got
blocked by several issues (like EC2 not support ecdsa keys, and we use
that for ansible, so we have to come back to RSA for full automated
deployment, and openvon requires to use certificates, so I need a newer
python openssl for doing what I want, and RHEL 7 is too old, etc, etc).
As the weekend approach for me, I just rebuilt the initrd for the time
being. I guess forcing hostonly is the safest fix for now, but this
will be for monday.
