Sun Java System Application Server 9.1 Update 1-9.1 Update 2 Release Notes

The management agent terminates with the exception "IPV6_MULTICAST_IF failed" (6232140)


When starting on a host running Solaris 8 with several NIC cards installed, if there is a mixture of cards with IPv6 and IPv4 enabled, the management agent may terminate with the exception "IPV6_MULTICAST_IF failed."


Set the environment variable JAVA_OPTIONS to; for example:

export JAVA_OPTIONS=""

Alternatively, use Solaris 9 or later, which do not exhibit this problem.
