Hostname resolution failure of a Virtual Machine

Hello Everyone. Any help on this is highly appreciated


Infoblox is registered to IBM PowerVC(OpenStack derivative). NIOS version is 7.2.19-358320


I deployed a VM over PowerVC. A and PTR records of the VM are updated in infoblox but there is an issue with name resolution

Hostname to ip doesnt resolve but ip to hostname resolves .


[root@ ~]# nslookup test-infoblox.vlan10 infoblox_ip
Server: infoblox_ip
Address: infoblox_ip#53
** server can't find REFUSED


[root@ip9-114-192-52 ~]# nslookup infoblox_ip
Server: infoblox_ip
Address: infoblox_ip#53 name = test-infoblox.vlan10.


test-infoblox is the name of the VM deployed in IBM PowerVCand vlan10 is the name of the network created in IBM PowerVC is the ip of the VM


DNS port connectivity to Infoblox seems to be fine

[root@ip ~]# nc -vz infoblox_ip 53
Ncat: Version 7.50 ( )
Ncat: Connected to infoblox_ip:53.
Ncat: 0 bytes sent, 0 bytes received in 0.06 seconds.


There is only a default DNS view and i checked "queries" section of DNS view and the options are set to None (When you select None, the appliance allows recursive queries from all clients. This is selected by default.)


Please let me know if there is additional configuration required in Infoblox to achieve successfull name resolution
