The problem that I presented yesterday seems to be related to forwarding
by my private name server to the public name server.
The private name server had the following statements in its named.boot file:
When I commented out these statements, the "no address found" messages
One of the responses to my original post raised the question of whether
the private name server had a root name server hints file; the answer is
"yes". It used the same hints file before and after the upgrade of the
public name server.
Another reponse to my post suggest network, firewall or routing
problems. I don't believe that to be the case. No network changes of
any sort were made during the conversion of the Linux box from Red Hat
6.2 to Red Hat 7.2. Also, FWIW, at the time I was getting the "no
address found" messages, I was able to run nslookup (sorry, dig wasn't
available) on the same system that the private name server is running
on. I was able to query the public name server successfully, so there
doesn't appear to be any problem getting DNS queries from the private to
the public server.
My options for the public name server are:
(The private name server is part of a network that's hidden behind a
firewall/VPN appliance. NAT is used to masquerade all of the private
hosts behind the IP address 220.127.116.11.)
From where I sit, it seems like Bind 9 may handle being the target of a
forwarder somewhat differently than Bind 8.
