Hi, we have several servers running DCC and we have recently begun having problems. Here is what happened: We had a small problem with a change that affected system IP addresses and DNS (/etc/resolv.conf). We fixed those problems. All servers again have the same information that they had previously. DCC then stopped working: # cdcc info # 10/15/04 09:33:43 CDT /var/dcc/map # Re-resolve names after 11:33:36 # 1 total, 0 working servers # skipping asking DCC server 1 seconds more IPv6 off dcc1.dcc-servers.net,- RTT+0 ms anon # UNDEFINED dcc2.dcc-servers.net,- RTT+0 ms anon # UNDEFINED ... It was working fine before. Okay, so I looked at /var/dcc and found that /var/dcc/map had changed. Does this happen automatically every day? It appears so. Anyway, after some reading of manpages I decided to run 'cdcc "load map.txt"': # cd /var/dcc && cdcc "load map.txt" This worked, as you can see below: # cdcc info # 10/15/04 09:34:39 CDT /var/dcc/map # Re-resolve names after 11:34:31 Check RTTs after 09:49:39 # 166.12 ms threshold, 189.06 ms average 12 total, 11 working servers IPv6 off dcc1.dcc-servers.net,- RTT+0 ms anon # 184.108.40.206,- CollegeOfNewCaledonia ID 1189 # 100% of 1 requests ok 205.73+0 ms RTT 103 ms queue wait # 220.127.116.11,- NIET ID 1080 # 100% of 1 requests ok 600.30+0 ms RTT 326 ms queue wait # 18.104.22.168,- ID 1074 # 100% of 1 requests ok 183.46+0 ms RTT 111 ms queue wait dcc2.dcc-servers.net,- RTT+0 ms anon # 22.214.171.124,- dcc3mcgill ID 1275 # 100% of 1 requests ok 223.87+0 ms RTT 104 ms queue wait # 126.96.36.199,- ID 1182 # 100% of 1 requests ok 307.92+0 ms RTT 74 ms queue wait ... Well, it worked for a while at least. The next day /var/dcc/map has changed again and DCC again fails. I did a strings on /var/dcc/map and found that the working version had more information than the non-working version: Working /var/dcc/map: # strings map DCC client mapped data version #8 dcc1.dcc-servers.net dcc2.dcc-servers.net dcc3.dcc-servers.net dcc4.dcc-servers.net dcc5.dcc-servers.net 127.0.0.1 1874805073x1005 sgs_public_dcc_server MessageCare WEiAPG sonic.net neonova SINECTIS dcc.uncw.edu dmv.com 127.0.0.1 1874805073x1005 Non-working /var/dcc/map on the same server before I ran "load map.txt": strings map DCC client mapped data version #8 dcc1.dcc-servers.net dcc2.dcc-servers.net dcc3.dcc-servers.net dcc4.dcc-servers.net dcc5.dcc-servers.net 127.0.0.1 1874805073x1005 127.0.0.1 1874805073x1005 I am not familiar with the function of /var/dcc/map to know what this actually means, but I have a feeling it is related. Any ideas?
