IPv4 / IPv6 configuration issues

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Currently, we use the static_config file to configure the networking mode. But this has a problem of losing the configuration during an upgrade.

      Document REST API to change the address family:

      curl -X POST http://<host>:8091/node/controller/setupNetConfig -d “afamily=ipv6”
      

      Document ipv6 configuration on upgrade from 5.5.2 to 5.5.3

Also changed in 5.5: https://github.com/couchbase/docs-server/blob/release/5.5/modules/rest-api/pages/rest-server-nodes.adoc

            Looks like this needs a little bit further attention as the IPv6 setup instructions are still referencing the old method: https://docs.couchbase.com/server/current/install/ipv6-setup.html

            This is still causing issues for some customers, the fix has been added on https://docs.couchbase.com/server/current/rest-api/rest-server-nodes.html

            But the problematic documentation is still present on https://docs.couchbase.com/server/current/install/ipv6-setup.html which is where the customers would primarily look for this info. The static_config method detailed there does not have any effect on 6.0.1-6.0.latest or 5.5.3-5.5.latest

            Suggest that we perhaps outline both methods, and specifically call out which versions follow which instructions.

            This would apply to:

            • 6.0.1 and later in 6.0.x
            • 5.5.3 and later in 5.5.x

            Previous maintenance versions in these 2 families will follow the static_config approach from earlier versions.
