OES2 - DNS not resolving

Hi.

I have a strange problem with the DNS-server on OES2.

After a reboot of the server, the DNS-server is unabled to resolve DNS-names that are in zones in the DNS-server. Resolving of DNS-names on the internet works fine, but when I try to resolve an internal DNS-name, like fs1.company.local, I get Server Failed in nslookup.

If I do a rcnovell-named stop and remove all db-files in /etc/opt/novell/named and then do a rcnovell-named start, it works fine again until the next reboot.

Any suggestions would be great on how to troubleshoot this.

The DNS-zones were originally created for Netware 6.5, so currently both Netware DNS and OES2 DNS-servers use the same zones (OES2 is primary server).

Best Regards
Marcus

Are you trying to do the lookups on the OES2 server itself that's running
DNS? If so, what servers are listed in /etc/resolv.conf? Is 127.0.0.1
listed first?

After a reboot, what does "rcnovell-named status" report?

Re: OES2 - DNS not resolving

Replying to my own thread...

I solved the issue. One of the old Netware-servers had an underscore (_) in the name.

Following TID 3775731 solved the issue.
