Forward Zone Not Working

Hi all,

I have defined a forward zone. I can see it in the zones list under "Data Management", then "DNS". The name is the domain name I want to forward and the Default Zone Forwarders are the two DNS servers that can resolve the new domain lookup requests. I have not checked "Use Forwarders Only" nor are there any Members defined.

 

From the Infoblox CLI I can dig into the target domains dns servers I want to forward to, and from a client server if I use nslookup and point to the new DNS servers resolution works fine, but when I point at the Infoblox I get no reoslution. I even captured the packets and I can see the request for the new domain come and then be rejected.

 

I am suspecting a stupid mistake on my part but can anyone help with finding where I have gone wrong with this forward zone?

 

Thanks in advance,

Sam

The “forward” zone must be set up on your recursive server so it knows that it should forward. This means that you need to “assign” it to a Grid member (or multiple) so that configuration is entered onto the appliance. If you create the zone but don’t assign it anywhere, the configuration just becomes a “placeholder” in the Grid database.

Once you add your recursive Grid nameservers into the zone configuration and restart services, you’ll find that the setting works as desired.
