Description Svante Victorsson 2011-02-01 14:24:42 UTC
Description of problem:
using /usr/bin/dig to analyse dns tree. When quering for hostrecord its no problem.
When +trace is used /usr/bin/dig is unable to resolve query.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
DiG 9.7.2-P3-RedHat-9.7.2-1.P3.fc13

How reproducible:
dig 1.11.228.81.in-addr.arpa   PTR  - resolves correctly
dig 1.11.228.81.in-addr.arpa   PTR +trace - unable to resolve

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to query normal dig - resolves as expected
2. try to trace dns tree - hangs
3.
  
Actual results:

+trace makes dig timeout

Expected results:

Should work

Additional info:
My system is dual stacked. I think that has something to do with it.
however, using -4 option to /usr/bin/dig it resolves nicely.

Comment 1 Svante Victorsson 2011-02-18 13:28:28 UTC
Anyway, after much debugging/trubbelshooting, the problem is solved. Apparently it was a router in the network, which stopped the returnig udp packets. But think it still is strange that /usr/bin/dig would not resolv because it "knows" that there are IPv4 connectivity. But perhaps it is another matter.


case closed.

Comment 2 Adam Tkac 2011-02-18 13:32:06 UTC
You are right there is a bug in the dig utility which prevents +trace working correctly.

You can trigger this bug when your machine is in the IPv6 LAN but this LAN has IPv4-only connectivity to Internet. In this case dig +trace fails as you wrote above and "-4" parameter is a workaround.
