Description

The issue above is related to the Perl component, which is not fully compatible with the IPv6 protocol on AIX. 

Workaround

With the help of a variable no-ipv6, you can remove this warning. Add a variable to the script that you use to start a process or a dbvisit console. See example below how to modify a script:

EXEC="/u03/dbvisit/AIX/replicate/dbvrep"
$EXEC --daemon --no-ipv6 --ddcfile /u03/dbvisit/fispoc/fispoc-MINE.ddc $*
