Symptom:

MD Core server issues an error of maximum clients connected to the server (100), while only working with several.



Cause:

This is an issue with the MD Core software and IPv6 on the server



Solution:

Here's how to disable the protocol on a Red Hat-based system:

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Change to the root user.
  3. Issue the command sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
  4. Issue the command sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1

To re-enable IPv6, issue the following commands:

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=0

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=0


Here's how to disable the protocol on a Debian-based machine.

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Issue the command sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf
  3. Add the following at the bottom of the file:
    net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
    net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
    net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1
  4. Save and close the file.
  5. Reboot the machine.

To re-enable IPv6, remove the above lines from /etc/sysctl.conf and reboot the machine.
