New issue 3170 by eyuw...@gmail.com: RBTools: A critical bug for handling
What version are you running?
We have multiple sites in our company where each site has a local proxy set
up for central Perforce servers. This means the proxy server has a hostname
and an IP address whereas the central Perforce server has a different
hostname and a different IP address.
In PerforceClient() in rbtools/clients/perforce.py, your code tries to
construct the actual repository_path by the lookup result from
socket.gethostbyaddr(). This is incorrect *unless* we also register the
proxy server in Review Board's repository table.
This following code should be commented out to make things work:
182 info = socket.gethostbyaddr(hostname)
184 # If aliases exist for hostname, create a list of alias:port
185 # strings for repository_path.
186 if info:
187 servers = [info] + info
188 repository_path = ["%s:%s" % (server, port)
189 for server in servers]
191 repository_path = "%s:%s" % (info, port)
Following is my debugging info:
('perforce-proxy-server....com', , ['10.17.193.71'])
We only register perforce-server....com in Review Board, this will cause
local users who interact with perforce-proxy-server....com not able to
