Failover : one DHCP cannot delete TXT/PTR records (timed out)
dhcp at nryc.fr

I'm using DHCP in failover mode, one server hosts the DHCP and the DNS,
the other only DHCP, dynamic DNS updates are activated ("deny
Our version of DHCP is the one provided by Debain Squeeze : 4.1.1-P1.
The DHCP configuration is the same on the two servers (updated with
rsync) at the exception of the "failover peer" section witch is unique
on each server.
I recently noticed that the "dhcp-only" server cannot cleanup the DNS
correctly, it can delete the "A" record but the PTR and TXT are left behind.
I don't understand what's happening. Somebody had a similar issue :
Below is a overview of the problem, I'm not sure if it is relevant but
bind is sending notifies before the TXT/PTR deletion attempt. We are
using IPv4 and IPv6 but on the Bind log I can see the "dhcp-only" server
using its IPv4 or IPv6 address with no problem.
Any help or ideas on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
=> DHCP log : delete of "A" record, OK
