PowerVC installation fails due to IPv6

You might encounter issues while installing PowerVC.


PowerVC installation might fail if IPv6 interface is enabled.


To resolve this issue, you must disable IPv6. Perform the following steps.
  1. Update sysctl.conf file with new config values.
    sudo cat <<EOT >> /etc/sysctl.conf
    #disable ipv6
    net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
    net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
    net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
    net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6 = 1
  2. Run sysctl -p to enable the new settings on your system.

    To check if the new settings are applied, you can run cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6. The output 1 indicates that IPv6 is disabled.
