What's fixed in this PTF
This PTF resolves the following issues:
- Fix 1863: MX queries
are corrupted when domain names and zone names are identical
If you used zone names and domain names that were
identical, the 3DNS System would return corrupted records. This issue is
resolved, and the following example /etc/wideip.conf configuration now works properly.
- Fix 2247: The big3d parent process occasionally stops working
The big3d's parent process occasionally stops working on the BIG/ip Controller when issuing virtual server status commands on behalf of the 3DNS Controller. Because the 3DNS controller communicates with the BIG/ip Controller using the parent process of big3d, iQuery communication would be stopped. This problem was caused by a race condition between big3d and bigpipe for a system resource. In the updated software, the race condition is now properly detected, error messages are logged, and queries are resubmitted.
The corresponding excerpt from /var/namedb/db.domain.com would read:domain.com. IN MX 10 mx.domain.com
www.domain.com. IN A 192.168.111.111
