A virtual server without a pool member gives wrong answers for the records in the Wide IP list.
I created a virtual server on LTM to be able to answer dns request and I have not assigned any pool member for that virtual server. My aim is just to return answers for the records stated in Wide IP lists.
In my scenario, I use a windows PC and nslookup tool. On nslookup prompt when I set the virtual server IP as a dns server which I mention above, the dns requests are sent as domain suffix added. Let's think my dns request is "; but the dns request is sent as "; and of course, f5 gives no response for the ";. This issue does not happen when I add a pool member to the virtual server.
The sample tcpdump output when a pool member exists, multiple dns trials exist such as ., ., .
The sample tcpdump output when no pool member exists, . (only one try).
Would you mind sharing the reason of that situation?
