JBoss EAP6 JGroups MPING fails with invalid argument

What to do if JBoss EAP6 fails to discover other cluster members with the following error from JGroups?


[org.jgroups.protocols.MPING] failed sending discovery request:
  java.io.IOException: Invalid argument
  at java.net.PlainDatagramSocketImpl.send(Native Method)
  at java.net.DatagramSocket.send(DatagramSocket.java:693)
  at org.jgroups.protocols.MPING.sendMcastDiscoveryRequest(MPING.java:300)

In my case the solution was simple. Add -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true to jbossctl.sh. Apparently the multicast code doesn’t work with IPv6 on my Linux version.
