Hi Per, hi everyone

I guess you know forwarding is broken because your queries aren't
forwarded to the _right_ nameservers? I mean, you have a special
reason for needing to use the nameservers?

Only that it would relieve our own servers.


I think it would be good to verify if forwarding happens or not (use
tcpdump) and then do a "dig <something>", then "dig +trace
<something>" that will require forwarding. That ought to give us
something to start on.

It looks as if our servers are doing it all ( is the DNS on


[snip - worked fine]

dig +trace

[snip - no forwarding happened]

options {
directory "/var/lib/named";
managed-keys-directory "/var/lib/named/dyn/";
forwarders {;;; };

plus default "forward first". Looks fine.

So, once you restart bind, forwarding to works? How does
that look with "dig +trace" ?
