Below are the SRV Records which i have updated on my local DNS Server. when i do the DNSLOOKUP from the laptop (Laptop is connected to the same EX90 network)  i can see SRV Records are getting resolved. i am sure the SRV Records are resolvable from the EX90 Network. i tried to resolve the same SRV Records by using VCS DNSLook up tool, and it's resolvable from there as well.

The DNS Resolution failure for the SRV Records issue is happening for all the devices includes Endpoints and other core components. But the SRV Records are resolvable through DNSLook UP Tool from laptop and VCS.

Re: DNS SRV Record Issue

Well, for me, all the configuration seems to be right. There is only one difference comparing to Cisco documentation, the parameter "weight" should be 10 rather than 100. Not sure if this could be a problem, but you could try to use 10.

Re: DNS SRV Record Issue

The priority and weitght should not make a problem.

The more interesting part here would be to know the TC version running on the EX90.

I would check that the network and DNS is ok on the endpoint. I would recomend TC6.1.2 or TC5.1.7

Can you login as root to the endpoint and do a

tcpdump -nl -s0  port 53

and paste the output? that should tell us a bit more on how the lookup fails.

I would also recomend trying to use the dns server you have (for example with a windows computer

using the same dns) and do a lookup of the srv records.

Like:

nslookup -type=srv video1.telecom.qat.gov.qa 8.8.8.8

replace the 8.8.8.8 with the ip of your internal DNS.

Please paste this output as well.

Its important that it points to an A record and not directly to an ip,

also check that the A record it points to can be resolved.

And trust me, there are often firewalls, so what one IP or computer can see mght not be seen by the other one

and sure, the proper dns server needs to be set up on the endpoint.

Do you use dhcp or static ip setup?

try to see with a (logged in as admin via ssh)

xstat // dns

and see that it is right

also try to do a

systemtools network ping vcsc01.telecom.qat.gov.qa

If you get something like:

ping: Couldn't look up host "vcsc01.telecom.qat.gov.qa".

someting really fishey is going on with your DNS :-)
