Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.2 and later
Linux x86-64


Doing RDS tests by command rds-ping and rds-stress keep failing. rds-ping fails as below. e.g:

# rds-ping -c 10 -I
bind() failed, errno: 99 (Cannot assign requested address)

In case of rds-stress this error occurs on server and client side.


New installation for RDS drivers.
