[Oisf-users] Suricata Support #2181 - sc_err_syscall<50>: failure when trying to get MTU via ioctl for:\device\..: invalid argument (22)

Is there an update/fix for the above referenced support number?  When starting Suricata, I get the following message which I think is causing Suricata to not fully load:

(util-ioctl.c:106) <Warning> (GetIfaceMTU) -- [ERRCODE: SC_ERR_SYSCALL(50)] - Failure when trying to get MTU via ioctl for '\Device\NPF_{5DB0B6BB-.........E25}': Invalid argument (22)

Troubleshooting steps I have taken:

  *   Used this site to reconcile my util-ioctl.c file against the one provided on the website - resulted in no change.


  *   Created a new util-ioctl.c file using the example from the site below - resulted in no change.


  *   Followed instructions on this site to change to single \'s in directory path for magic.mgc file in yaml.


I have been able to find on the Internet examples of other users getting the same error message, but have not been able to find a solution.

System details:
            Server - Windows 2016 Server
            Suricata version - 4.1.0-dev (rev 787473ec)

This is a fresh install of Suricata on the server (not an upgrade).  I have attached the current .yaml file and util-ioctl.c file, as well as a screen shot of the console when I start Suricata.

Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help me get Suricata working.

Thank you!
