IPv6 DNS lookup
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


In VyOS 1.3:

set system static-host-mapping host-name myhost1 inet
set system static-host-mapping host-name myhost2 inet 2001:db8:abcd:10::1

$ host myhost1
myhost1 has address

$ host myhost2
host myhost2 not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Hopefully the problem is something simple to fix?

Event Timeline

Is anyone else seeing this same problem? It is keeping me from being able to use VyOS in an IPv6-only environment.

After doing some research, it appears this is a known bug in PowerDNS Recursor 4.7 (amazing to me).

It is now merged into PDNS master branch so I assume it will be deployed on the next PDNS 4.8 release.

I guess I'll have to wait until then to request to merge it in to VyOS or can the current master version of PDNS be brought in to VyOS????

@dsummers I strongly believe we should not publish bleeding edge HEAD revisions and stick bleeding edge releases only.

If it helps in your case - you could upgrade the PDNS package on your router to the master revision.

sudo dpkg -i pdns*.deb

As soon as PDNS 4.8 is released I see no reason not to upgrade. We currently use PDNS 4.5 - maybe an upgrade to 4.7 would also do the trick and request a backport from the maintainers?

I downloaded

and did "systemctl restart pdns-recursor" and now it works!

Thank for the work around!

Obviously, please keep this issue open until the PDNS 4.8.0 is released and get that into the Equuleus build.
