Daniel Thayer commented on BIT-1511:

Try running this command:
LANG=C  /sbin/ifconfig  -a

Does the output contain "inet addr:"
and "inet6 addr:" (instead of "inet adr:"
and "adr inet6:")?

>             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
>          Issue Type: Problem
>          Components: BroControl
>    Affects Versions: 2.3
>         Environment: Linux  3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u6 (2015-11-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux Debian Jessie
>            Reporter: Nicolas Merle
>              Labels: broctl, ifconfig
> Since recently, ifconfig in debian show ip address starting with "adr" and not "addr" as before and so when using ''BroCtl check'' in a local cluster configuration, it doesn't work and you get the error : "Error: must run broctl only on manager node broctl check"
