DNS Queries forwarded to active directory DNS Server does not find records
the goal i want to archive is that I could resolve IP-Adresses for hostnames of internal servers. For these szenario I have an Active Directory up and running, which also comes as a DNS Server. If I query an hostname using the internal DNS Server, everything looks fine:
C:\Users\sschabbach>nslookup duplo 192.168.7.34 Server: milka.corp.fluent-software.vio Address: 192.168.7.34 Name: duplo.corp.fluent-software.vio Address: 192.168.7.33
where 192.168.7.34 is the ip adress of the DNS Server.
If I do the same from the DNS Forwarder/Resolver in pfSense I got the following output:
C:\Users\sschabbach>nslookup duplo 192.168.7.242 Server: bounty.corp.fluent-software.vio Address: 192.168.7.242 *** bounty.corp.fluent-software.vio can't find duplo: Non-existent domain
For information 192.168.7.242 is the internal ip address from one of the LAN interfaces.
Timings Name server Query time 127.0.0.1 17 msec 126.96.36.199 23 msec 188.8.131.52 23 msec 184.108.40.206 22 msec 220.127.116.11 23 msec 192.168.7.34 8248 msec
From the DNS Diagnostics I see that it takes much time to query the internal DNS Server, but if I query the DNS Server directly everything seems smoothly.
Any ideas on that?
nslookup duplo 192.168.7.34
duplo is not a fqdn... No shit your having issues with resolving it... query
your nslookup is adding the domain for you... set debug on it and see for yourself..
and for sure this dns servers known nothing about your local zone :
18.104.22.168 23 msec
22.214.171.124 23 msec
126.96.36.199 22 msec
188.8.131.52 23 msec
Under the DNS Resolver settings, under Domain Overrides, add your Windows domain and Windows DNS servers.
Wow, pretty nice support in a very little amount of time. The Trick with the Domain Overrides works well.
Could anyone tell me what the Domain overrides does?
domain override forward all queries for that domain to the specified IP (it's already written in the description, i don't know what else can be added)
The IP address is treated as the authoritative lookup server for the domain (including all of its subdomains), and other lookup servers will not be queried
