Having a problem with a partially isolated subnet attempting to make LDAP (v.3) requests from a Windows domain with multiple DCs. Though there are multiple DCs and, therefore, DNS servers in the domain, this subnet can only talk to three of them.
The application is making the requests from DomainDnsZones.domain and ForestDnsZones.domain -- when the requests hits the Windows network, the least busy DC responds -- which 9 times out of ten (or more) is one that the subnet can NOT communicate with -- so the request hangs and dies. I could limit it in /etc/hosts to one DC only, but they eliminated redundancy. There is a host alias (MYDC.domain) in the domain for just the DCs this network can use; however, the general requests that are going out do not get limited to those two. I can alias DomainDnsZones and ForestDnsZones to MYDC.domain, but once the FQDN is used (which seems non-configurable in the application!), the aliases are ignored. MYDC.domain does not have its own IP, so can't use /etc/hosts. Can dnsmasq map DomainDnsZones.domain and ForestDnsZones.domain to MYDC.domain? How do I set this up? -- ----- Fight back spam!
