Pivotal Elastic Runtime Versions from 1.6 to 1.12
When deploying an Elastic Runtime job, the deploy fails and returns the following error:
Failed to start UDP listener. Err: listen udp 10.0.0.10:1234: bind: address already in use
dhclient, the Linux process that sends Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client requests, claims two UDP ports at random when a virtual machine (VM) starts. Because the Linux process selects the ports rather than Elastic Runtime, it is possible for
dhclient to select a port that is already in use by a job in your deployment.
dhclient selects a port that one of your Elastic Runtime jobs is configured to use, deploying that job fails and returns the above error.
Restart the VM that produces this error. Upon restart, the
dhclient process selects two new UDP ports.
