Bind forgets to forward


i have something crazy, i dont get what is the reason…

my local dns server should forward all not known entrys to, so i set it as forwarder…
it works without any problems BUT after sometime it dont forward any more… after a restart of the bind service it works again:


what the hell could cause this issue?




sounds indeed weird. I guess replication got stuck for some reason. Check here.

And/ or check your DNS/Bind log entries. Be aware when using LDAP as backend there is a second bind-process running!

My recommendation is to use the Samba backend on all UCS using Samba and only change to LDAP where Samba is not installed!
