Does UCS DNS understand "*" records?

Hello. In Windows DNS server is normal to create “star” host record for zone, and then it resolves normally names like:, etc to same (‘star’) ip address.
For some reason it doesn’t work in UCS:
** server can’t find NXDOMAIN

As I remember, UCS DNS is Bind based and Bind supports “star” records.
And I see in /var/log/syslog:
named[5798]: zone refresh: unexpected rcode (SERVFAIL) from master (source

Also I used your 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
output is:
zone NS ‘’ has no address records (A or AAAA)

and I don’t understand what does it mean, why NS is so strange looking ?

Yes, wildcard DNS entries do work in UCS:

# udm dns/forward_zone list --filter
  expire: 7 days
  refresh: 8 hours
  retry: 2 hours
  serial: 2
  ttl: 3 hours
  zonettl: 3 hours

# udm dns/txt_record list --superordinate,cn=dns,dc=phahn50,dc=qa
DN: relativeDomainName=*,,cn=dns,dc=phahn50,dc=qa
  name: *
  txt: test
  zonettl: 22 hours

# dig @localhost txt
;                   IN      TXT            79200   IN      TXT     "test"                10800   IN      NS        80600   IN      A

zone NS ‘’ has no address records (A or AAAA)

You probably forgot to append the trailing dot for the name server in the SOA entry of your zone: If a label does not end with a dot, BIND appends the zone name again. As your DNS server lives in a different domain make sure the trailing dot is there!

Thank you, that was a real reason. Marked this as “solution”
