GSS-TSIG not working and have no idea why

Struggling a bit in my lab today. Previously I have had GSS-TSIG signed updates working fine from Infoblox DHCP into MS DNS, but for some reason today, I just cannot get it working. I have upgraded to NIOS 8.5.2 in case it was a bug, but despite everything I get a message saying "server unknown" when it's trying to negotiate the security context. The diagnostics also complain about the same issue, but when I run dig the server name is resolved no problem.

 

I'm sure it's something stupidly easy but I can't see the wood for the trees and need another set of eyes...

Hello Paul,

 

Seeing the diagnostic test result pasted, i wonder if the KDC is able to resolve its own name ? Can you try this from the CLI of your Iblab?  : 

iblab (A) > dig @192.168.2.71 win2k8-1.ad.cn.corp

 

That's what'll happen in the end to verify zone authority(during the config test). As you've specified 192.168.2.71 to be the authoritative server for ad.cn.corp & 168.192.in-addr.arpa zones under Configure DDNS, your Iblab would try to compare the above dig result with this IP. If it doesn't match, then the test would throw that error in the end.

 

If that dig result doesn't resolve to 192.168.2.71 as of now, can you ensure this result & try again to see if it helps in getting the secure updates through ?

 

Now if it doesn't help, I would take a traffic capture duirng the failed attempts & compare the krb error from the capture with something like this link , which might give a bit more clear insight around the problem. 

 

Best regards,

Mohammed Alman

Hi, thanks for replying, yes I did check that the server name itself resolves, here is the dig output to both windows servers...

Also both the forward and reverse zones I am trying to update resolve fine, there is something weird going on here, maybe some kind of bug...

Hello Paul,

 

Thank you for your reply. If this happened right after a product upgrade, then there are chances of a change in feature architecture or may be a bug. But if this happened all in sudden in a working lab/prod environment where it has been working well, may be some environmental variables changed resulting in the situation(Just assuming, since i think its too early to assume this to be a bug). Can you look into the traffic capture to see what the the KDC is complaining about ? This page has the error descriptions to give a basic lead. Just a sample of error(Please ignore the error seen) :

kerb_error.png

Here, 192.168.29.225 is my KDC. I'll try to replicate the error that you see, in my lab meanwhile(Trial/error). 

 

Best regards,

Mohammed Alman
