  • Component changed from Unclassified to libdhcp
  • Milestone changed from Kea-proposed to Kea1.2-final
  • Priority changed from medium to low

As discussed on 2017-04-20 call, accepting in 1.2-final as low. There's a chance we may be able to do it, but if not, we won't slip any dates because of it.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by fdupont

As it was introduced by #5201 I reopened the ticket and merged the fix.

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by fdupont

IMHO the problem is the REUSEPORT socket option which is not available on all RedHat?'s, cf (search for REUSEPORT). BTW jenkins uses a 6.4 when all docs say the socket option was back ported in 6.5.

Very good find, Francis. Ok, the nature of the problem is understood now. Updated known issues list. Moving this ticket to 1.3.

  • Summary changed from failing tests on RedHat to failing tests on RedHat 6.4 due to lack of SO_REUSEPORT socket option

comment:6 Changed 3 years ago by fdupont

I created a trac5243x branch to check on Jenkins: the problem is the SO_REUSEPORT which is defined (so the #ifdef matches) but not supported: the worse combination and IMHO a system bug...

comment:7 Changed 3 years ago by fdupont

The real question is what should be the scope of the fix: all RedHat's?

comment:8 Changed 2 years ago by fdupont

See RT 35591 too about the same issue for ISC DHCP.

Done. Jenkins is validating the patch (ignore ENOPROTOOPT on SO_REUSEPORT) on RedHat?.

Jenkins build ( confirmed that those unit-tests are now passing. There's a depressing number of other unit-test failures on that system, but they are out of scope for this ticket.

I have reviewed the change and it looks fine, although I pushed a small comment explaining that 6.4 is affected, but other versions may be too.

I have also run the tests on Ubuntu 16.04, but its kernel supports SO_REUSEPORT, so the problem didn't manifest itself before the fix.

I tried to upgrade my CentOS 6.3 (kea didn't compile due to lack of C++11 support), but it takes forever and I gave up.

You probably need a ChangeLog? entry for this. Something like "Unit-tests for libdhcp now ignore ENOPROTOPT when setting SO_REUSEPORT to improve compatibility with older RedHat? versions."

Please pull, review and merge.

Merged. Closing. BTW I put it in [bug] when it should be in [port] but [port] does not exist.
