Can a CNAME being blocked cause NXDOMAIN?

Here we can see the CNAME for microsoft.com is getting blocked by the rpz rule.


The IP address is 23.8.232.48. 


Can one cname being blocked by rpz cause this nxdomain? MS has multiple IPs when I try nslookup or dig shouldn't I get an IP from there?

 

Also this cname IP is not even mentioned in the dig output so why is this exactly happening?

Looking at the syslog data, we can extrapolate that you have the RPZ policy with the name "testrule" set to block the IP in question (23.8.232.48.32 as it is reversed in the logs IIRC) and return an nxdomain response in return.

 

Whenever something in an answer is blocked, the entire query response is affected and not just the individual answer. And for RPZ rules, you have options to block with an NXDOMAIN or NODATA response.

 

Using your syslong message, I have moved the helpful parts of the log message that explain this down to their own lines with leading hyphens.

- rewrite e13678.dspb.akamaiedge.net [A]

- via 32.48.232.8.23.rpz-ip.testrule"

 

 

Hope this helps.
