      Because this type was part of the T&P extraction in Puppet 6, it needs to both be updated in the code in 5.5.x, as well as the extracted module.

      Description

      Hi,

      an old problem, known at least since 2011, still exists in puppet and is causing more and more trouble: the host resource and put a host into /etc/hosts with either its ipv4 or ipv6 address, but not with both.

      Since it is state of the art today and normal that machines have both addresses, this really causes headache and problems.

       

      I wonder why a problem know for at least 8 years still exists, if

      https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/5.5/types/host.html

      is still correct.

       

      regards
