Re: [opensuse] bind DNS: forwarders not working unless named is restarted

Our internal zones are loaded fine after boot, but hitting any of
the forwarders pointing out to Internet fails. Here is the line in
/etc/named.conf on DC1:
forwarders {;; };
and on DC2:
forwarders {;; };

Both the forwarders are online and nslookup-able e.g.:
lynn@hh1:~> nslookup



Non authoritative answer: name =

Authoritative answers can be found from: nameserver = nameserver = internet address = internet address =

But I have to restart named for the forwarders to kick in. I've tried

You mean it does not work right after reboot?
I've had similar problems in past because of several reasons, for
example if network setup was not really completed before starting
named. I thought I got everything solved but yesterday I noticed again
a broken named on one of my 11.4 boxes. Maybe the latest bind update
two weeks ago did something bad?

Anyway to avoid problems with incomplete network setup etc. you could do
in /etc/sysconfig/boot (requires sysvinit). Then see whether the problem
still persists.
