Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • DataPower for linux does not pickup the nameserver entry from
    the /etc/resolv.conf.  If there is more than one space between
    the nameserver and the ip address defined then the name server
    will not be loaded into the DataPower DNS settings.
    

Local fix

  • Use a single space.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected are only customers using DataPower for Linux.
    
    Due to a overly strict parsing of the /etc/resolv.conf file
    containing DNS configuration, the contents might not be properly
    applied.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
