I started network server on an IPv6 machine with
java org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl start -h maxilla-v6.xxx.xxx.xxx.com
I was able to then connect ok with ij and ping the server but when I try to shutdown
java org.apache.derby.drda.NetworkServerControl shutdown -h maxilla-v6.xxx.xxx.xxx.com
2009-03-04 22:46:13.666 GMT : host: loopback6.xxx.xxx.xxx.com is not local to the server running on maxilla-v6.xxx.xxx.xxx.com. so cannot be used for NetworkServerControl commands
(domain names xx'ed out)
I don't know if this is something particular to this machine or a problem with all IPv6 machines, but it looks like a bug. This particular machine has an IPv4 address as well as IPv6 and maybe that has something to do with it. Apparently there is a problem with our collection of local IP addresses on IPv6. This was with IBM 1.6.
Does anyone use network server on an IPv6 successfully, assuming you ever have tried taking it down #
