Subject: test.indexdata.com not in DNS, tests fail
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
When attempting to install Net::Z3950::ZOOM from CPAN, a number of tests fail with the following error: # Failed test 'connection to 'test.indexdata.com:2118' refused (10000)' Tried with versions 1.25 and 1.24. Forcing an install works fine, ignores the failed tests and results in an install that I can use to successfully query another Z39.50 server. The host used by the tests does not appear to be in dns at this time: $ host test.indexdata.com Host test.indexdata.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN) And seems to be missing since at least the 18th, just guessing based on the date-like serial on the zone: $ host -C indexdata.com Nameserver ns.lsd.dk: indexdata.com has SOA record bagel.indexdata.com. root.bagel.indexdata.com. 2009081810 172800 14400 1814400 86400 Nameserver bagel.indexdata.dk: indexdata.com has SOA record bagel.indexdata.com. root.bagel.indexdata.com. 2009081810 172800 14400 1814400 86400 Restoring the test.indexdata.com hostname should hopefully fix this. I see mention on the indexdata blog of a "new site", so this may be related. Other infrastructure beyond just the hostname may need to be restored -- I'm sure the maintainer is in a better position to know this than I. Thanks for your attention! -jeff

I apologize, and I must amend my bug report. The 1.24 attempt fails due to test.indexdata.com no longer existing in DNS, which I now see is a known issue since September of last year. The 1.25 tests fail with a different error against the new host z3950.indexdata.com: Failed test 'connection to 'z3950.indexdata.com:2100' refused (10000)' and indeed: $ telnet z3950.indexdata.com 2100 Trying 83.133.64.60... telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused Again, my apologies for re-raising the old issue of the "test" hostname, but hopefully the issue with the new "z3950" host refusing connections can be addressed. There had previously been mention of a patch by Andrew Moore that (as I understand it) checked for the ability to connect to the host before testing, skipping (instead of failing) the tests if the host was unreachable or unresolvable. Perhaps a good idea, though I'm not currently in a position to resurrect the patch. Thanks again! -jeff

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. The problem was on the server side, and is now fixed: mike@xeno:/usr/local/src/git/ZOOM-Perl$ make test PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/1-Net-Z3950-ZOOM......ok t/10-options............ok t/11-option-callback....ok t/12-query..............ok t/13-resultset..........ok t/14-sorting............ok t/15-scan...............ok t/16-packages...........ok t/17-logging............ok t/18-charset............ok t/19-events.............ok t/2-ZOOM................ok t/20-options............ok t/21-option-callback....ok t/22-query..............ok t/23-resultset..........ok t/24-sorting............ok t/25-scan...............ok t/26-packages...........ok t/27-logging............ok t/28-charset............ok t/29-events.............ok All tests successful. Files=22, Tests=712, 21 wallclock secs ( 2.48 cusr + 0.48 csys = 2.96 CPU) mike@xeno:/usr/local/src/git/ZOOM-Perl$ I didn't apply the patch you mentioned because the module is literally useless unless it can connect to and interact with remote servers, anda test suite that doesn't test this isn't really testing anything. (Also, that patch would have hidden the problem that you just reported!) Thanks again! 2009/8/26 Jeff Godin via RT <bug-Net-Z3950-ZOOM@rt.cpan.org>: Show quoted text
