Issue:

When running "$IGW_LOC/S99igateway start" , only "/bin/sh ./WDigateway.sh" process starts. Process "./igateway -b" does not start.

Environment:
EEM 12.51 on Linux/Unix.
Cause:

When running a strace on start of igateway thru following command

strace -f -o /tmp/trace_igw.out ./S99igateway start

In the /tmp/trace_iwg.out we can find following error message:

bind(11, {sa_family=AF_INET6, sin6_port=htons(0), inet_pton(AF_INET6, "::1", &sin6_addr), sin6_flowinfo=0, sin6_scope_id=0}, 28) = -1 EADDRNOTAVAIL (Cannot assign requested address)

Resolution:

Remove the following line from /etc/hosts:

::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
