Hello. In Windows DNS server is normal to create “star” host record for zone, and then it resolves normally names like: a.zone.com., b.zone.com. c.zone.com etc to same (‘star’) ip address.
For some reason it doesn’t work in UCS:
** server can’t find myhostname.zonewithstar.dom.com: NXDOMAIN
As I remember, UCS DNS is Bind based and Bind supports “star” records.
And I see in /var/log/syslog:
named: zone zonewithstar.dom.com/IN: refresh: unexpected rcode (SERVFAIL) from master 127.0.0.1#7777 (source 0.0.0.0#0)
Also I used your check-dns-zone-syntax.py script, and it says this particular zone is invalid, but I don’t understand, why it is invalid ?
When I do:
grep -B10 “not loaded due to errors” /var/log/daemon.log
zone zonewithstar.dom.com/IN: NS ‘idm1.dom.com.zonewithstar.dom.com’ has no address records (A or AAAA)
and I don’t understand what does it mean, why NS is so strange looking ?
