VSX Clustering R80.20 DNS resolving error msg

Greetings!

I am seeing constant Alert error messages in our logs with reason: Firewall - Domain resolving error. Check DNS configuration on the gateway (0) .

Here are the statistics: R80.20, running on VSX, JHF Take 103 applied, 

Initially I thought the issue was being caused by the fact that in VSX the DNS servers for each context are the same (SK152873 - a large oversight if you ask me but) so with some redesign I was able to find 3 common DNS targets that would work in this scenario. Once that was applied, I still am seeing tons of these alert errors.

From the CLI I am able to confirm that all of the VSX contexts resolve DNS using dig/nslookup etc so I am not sure why I would be seeing this behavior

Hi,

 

I guess you are using domain objects, right?

Re: VSX Clustering R80.20 DNS resolving error msg

As a matter of fact, yes, were trying to do that. What I am failing to understand is that from an external resource I can generate DNS traffic to a DNS server behind the cluster, and I see the error appear in that manor, sometimes... It's completely hit or miss which is confusing to say the least, sometimes I see the hits with no alerts, other times with the alert "Firewall - Domain resolving error. Check DNS configuration on the gateway (0)" which makes no sense to ,e.

Hi,

 

the fix included in on going JHF take 117, if you can move to this take it will be great.

Hi Ilya,

Hi Khalid,

 

The fix already included in R80.30 GA version so i suggest to open a TAC case and share it with me so i can check with RnD owners.

Re: VSX Clustering R80.20 DNS resolving error msg

Probably you have resolved it by now but if not make sure that TCP DNS lookups are allowed from your gateway
