Hi.. We have setup a virtual Server to load balance 3 Windows DNS servers in LTM(implemented with route domain). We used iapp DNS template to configure from BigIP side, all seems ok. But when we try to resolve any address with nslookup we are getting DNS Request Timed out error. After the first time out, we are able connect to that VIP and able to resolve the host names.

 

 

C:\Users\user>nslookup

DNS request timeout

timeout was 2 seconds

Default Server: Unknown

Address: 10.10.10.10

 

> aaa.com

Server: UnKnown

Address: 10.10.10.10

 

Non-authoritative answer:

Name:  aaa.com

Address: 123.123.123.123

 

C:\Users\user>ping 10.10.10.10

You need to perform some diags. What can you prove?

 

What do you see on a tcpdump at the BigIP? Do you see the first request come in to the VIP? Do you see that request being passed? Do you see the request make it to the back end server? And do you see the responses? Where do they go?

 

There's no magic bullet (Unless someone gets lucky in guessing).
