Recently I added a pool and Virtual IP for one of our web url into BIG-IP version 12.1.2 Build 0.0.249
We are able to access the url using the IP address but not able to access using the name.
192.168.10.14 --> dev2.oitssystem.com
So when we do https://192.168.10.14 it works, but i want to have that work when we put the name.
Any help is appreciated... Thanks!!
yea. I did added these IP/url entries into our DNS name server zone files and restarted the DNS server. The resolution is not working either forward or reverse. I tried all possible ways at DNS level but no luck so far. So was thinking if any workaround at router or bigip level..
No. You need to fix your DNS unless you want to add that host to the host files of all your clients
Does the workstation have the correct DNS IP ?
I.E. ipconfig /all --will list "DNS Servers"
You should also be able to ping the DNS IP, if not, you have networking issues.
From the client machine, if you can't resolve the domain (dev2.oitssystem.com) to the IP address, you have a problem at the DNS level that needs to be sorted and not the F5, especially since you can directly access the IP address and get the relevant data.
thanks all.. working on fixing the dns
There is no magic in IT!
If the dns server don’t resolve the hostname, the client won’t know where it may send the request!
If the request doesn’t arrive on bigip, it can’t do anything!!!
