How not to set up your DNS (part 3)
Presented once again in illustration:
; sdig ns isotech.com.cy dns2.lordosinfo.com. dns1.lordosinfo.com. ; sdig ns lordosinfo.com. dns1.edynet.com.cy. dns1.lordosinfo.com. ; sdig ns edynet.com.cy. dns2.netconnect.com.cy. dns1.netconnect.com.cy.
At the moment:
- dns2.netconnect.com.cy is not responding,
- dns1.edynet.com.cy doesn't exist according to dns1.netconnect.com.cy,
- dns2.lordosinfo.com is a CNAME to outopos.lordosinfo.com,
- and outopos.lordosinfo.com is a CNAME to itself (that's good for bonus points).
In the face of all of this, our DNS server is currently laughing hysterically at the very idea of looking up A and MX records for isotech.com.cy. (In fact it bitches about 'protocol error', possibly due to the nice CNAME loop.)
