Hi all,

I am having some problems with my DNS properly resolving; I have a domain with namecheap, I have ns1 propogated to 68.64.169.81, and ns2 to 68.64.169.82.

Now, when I try to resolve my domain I get a server timeout.

Code:
[email protected] [~]# nslookup xendev.net. 4.2.2.2
;; connection timed out; trying next origin
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
When I dig the domain using the 4.2.2.2 resolver I get;

Code:
[email protected] [~]# dig @4.2.2.2 xendev.net

; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.6 <<>> @4.2.2.2 xendev.net
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 60756
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;xendev.net.                    IN      A

;; SERVER: 4.2.2.2#53(4.2.2.2)
;; WHEN: Wed Dec  4 17:20:29 2013
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 28
However, when I dig at my own local nameserver;

Code:
[email protected] [~]# dig @68.64.169.81 xendev.net

; <<>> DiG 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.6 <<>> @68.64.169.81 xendev.net

xendev.net.             86400   IN      NS      ns1.xendev.net.

;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
ns1.xendev.net.         14400   IN      A       68.64.169.81
ns2.xendev.net.         14400   IN      A       68.64.169.82

;; Query time: 0 msec

So I am very confused, to me it seems like it is getting lost somewhere in chain of servers. Any thought on this?

Thanks!

Hello :)

Have you tried temporarily disabling your firewall rules to rule that out as the cause of the problem? Also, you may want to try rebuilding the DNS configuration to see if that helps. EX:

Code:
mv /etc/named.conf /etc/named.conf.backup
/scripts/rebuilddnsconfig
If the issue continues, it be worth re-creating the DNS Zone associated with the domain name to ensure it's not corrupted.

Thank you.
