Router resolves as when using Router's Recursive DNS
In progress, NormalPublicBUG



When using the router's local instance of pdns as the DNS resolver for clients, the hostname configured for the router is resolved as
This makes it impossible to SSH or SNMP monitor the router using its DNS name.

set system host-name 'ferrari'
set system domain-name '<mydomain>.com'
tim@ferrari# show interfaces ethernet eth1 | commands
set address ''

[edit service dns forwarding]
tim@ferrari# show | commands
set allow-from ''
set allow-from ''
set cache-size '8192'
set listen-address ''
set name-server 'x.x.x.39'
set name-server 'x.x.x.40'

set host-name ferrari.<mydomain>.com inet ''

It would be better if the DNS name of the router as configured in static-host-mapping could be returned.
