Description Christian Schaller 2005-08-10 12:54:57 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050719 Epiphany/1.6.3

Description of problem:
Noticed that NetworkManager behaves strangely also at work, for some reason I am not able to reach local addresses by name through the NetworkManager DNS setup.
These two nslookup commands should display the problem.

nslookup thomas

** server can't find thomas: NXDOMAIN

nslookup thomas -

Name:   thomas.fluendo.lan

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
The NetworkManager-named.conf looks like this:
// Named configuration, generated by NetworkManager

options {
        directory "/";
        query-source address * port *;
        forward only;
        forwarders {; };
        listen-on  {; };
        pid-file "/var/named/data/NetworkManager-pid-named";

// Disable rndc
controls { };

Actual Results:  So as you see the dns server set up by NetworkManager for some reason fails to give me results on local addresses.

Expected Results:  To compare external addresses works fine:
nslookup www.redhat.com

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   www.redhat.com

nslookup www.redhat.com -

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   www.redhat.com

NetworkManager does put your DHCP's name-servers list to named's forwarders, but
what's in your /etc/resolv.conf? Should have "search fluendo.lan" there.

; generated by NetworkManager, do not edit!

; Use a local caching nameserver controlled by NetworkManager

search fluendo.lan

Comment 3 Dan Williams 2005-08-12 11:03:38 EDT
so after talking with Jason Vas Dias, it appears we either need to (a) kill
named completely and restart it, rather than giving it a SIGHUP, or (b) convert
to the new dbus-enabled named.  Obviously we want (b) for Rawhide, but for FC-4
I think we'll do (a).
Comment 4 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:14:52 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 5 petrosyan 2008-02-28 14:02:44 EST
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
