Disabling IPv6

In a recent Predictive Cluster Validation Summary for one of my clusters, Cloudera Proactive Support states:

 

"The following hosts have IPv6 enabled, which is against our best practices, because it can cause connectivity problems. This is discussed in the CDH documentation. (http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera/en/documentation/core/latest/topics/cdh_ig_req_supported_ve..."

 

Yet that page simply says that "IPv6 is not supported and must be disabled."

 

If this is a hard requirement, then why is there no documentation on *how* to disable IPv6 for the various supported OSs?  I understand that Cloudera may not want to get into the OS configuration business, but at least pointers to vender documentation should be provided.

Re: Disabling IPv6

Hello @mjarnold,

 

Thank you for pointing that out.  I have added this post to internal Cloudera Jira DOCS-1862 where we are discussing documentation.
