[erlang-bugs] net_adm:ping annoying messages due to /etc/hosts content
Mon Jun 4 22:23:56 CEST 2012
I finally found the problem.
A colleague of mine had the "good" idea to add 'localhost'. in
~/.hosts.erlang both in test env and in customer env, mixed with FQDN
The line which cause the messages was (simplified) :
lists:foreach(fun(N) -> net_adm:ping(N) end ,
Message was in fact not raised by net_adm:ping/1 but by net_adm:world/0 .
But what is tricky is that we do not have
in our test env.
*in such case no message is raised* .
As it was the lone difference between both env, I add the line in
our /etc/hosts and I saw that raised the messages.
It is the reason why I though it was the only problem .
When removing 'localhost'. in ~/.hosts.erlang everything is OK.
So localhost must be both in /etc/hosts and ~/.hosts.erlang to create
the problem. Strange isn't it ?
