F5 DNS - iRule to rewrite NAPTR response

Gerald_Meese

Hello,

I'm almost new to F5 DNS, and I'm trying to find how to rewrite an NAPTR response from a backend DNS server and send it bacl to the calling client.

The DNS server would answer this :
test.apn NAPTR 10 100 "A" "x-test-pgw:x-s5-gtp:x-gn" "" topoff.pgw-s5s8.pgw-PM-01.node.epc.mnc033.mcc222.test.org.

And the F5 would rewrite that answer to this double entry, and send it back to the client :
test.apn NAPTR 10 60 "A" "x-test-pgw:x-s5-gtp:x-gn" "" topoff.pgw-s5s8.pgw-PM-01.node.epc.mnc033.mcc222.test.org.

test.apn NAPTR 10 40 "A" "x-test-pgw:x-s5-gtp:x-gn" "" topoff.pgw-s5s8.pgw-PM-02.node.epc.mnc033.mcc222.test.org.

Do you think that would work ? Any guidance would be highly appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

I found this old post as a reference :

Thanks !!

        DNS::answer clear
