Known issues with rds tools in RHEL 6

Updated -

Running the rds-ping command may fail, returning the error:

bind() failed, errno: 99 (Cannot assign requested address). 

Note also that this error may occur even with LOAD_RDS=yes set in /etc/rdma/rdma.conf. To work around this issue, load the rds-tcp module.

Running the command rds-stress on a client may result in the following error when attempting to connect to the server:

connecting to <server IP address>:4000: No route to host
connect(<server IP address>) failed#

These issues are documented in the RHEL 6 Technical Notes, and are represented by Red Hat Bugzilla # 463800.
