Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6056) Use java.net.preferIPv4Stack to force IPv4

-------------------------------------

Hi Michele,

I think I'd be more comfortable with this going in if there were an environment variable to
override the check and force the script to continue even if there bad setting is present.
Perhaps something like $HADOOP_ALLOW_IPV6 ?

Given that you managed to get a bit farther than I did, I don't think we know for sure that
it's not worth giving it a go at all. There may be some users who can run with this on, and
since it's a systemwide setting it's worth allowing users the chance to try if they're unable
to change the sysctl.

> This was mentioned on HADOOP-3427, there is a property,  java.net.preferIPv4Stack, which
you set to true for the java net process to switch to IPv4 everywhere. 
> As Hadoop doesn't work on IPv6, this should be set to true in the startup scripts. Hopefully
this will ensure that Jetty will also pick it up.
