Hello everyone I am quite desperate with some CNAMES and would appreciate any help. I have a DHCP device (switch-3) which gets it address via dnsmasq. I can ping it and dig @127.0.0.1 (on the host with dnsmasq) shows its IP.
The strange thing is that a dig for switch-3 and for switch-3.swtk.info (the FQDN, expanded thanks to host-expand) return the same IP, but the first one has a TTL of 0 and the second one of 600. No idea why. Both ping fine (as the IP is the same) I then wanted to add a CNAME for ch1-lampe-bureau which would point to switch-3 and I tried to add cname=ch1-lampe-bureau,switch-3 as well as all combinations of FQDN (on both the CNAME and target). None of them work, a dig does not show the CNAME. At the same time, when doing an AXFR from another host I get ch1-lampe-bureau.swtk.info. 600 IN CNAME switch-3.swtk.info. I am lost at understanding how this works: apparently dnsmasq knows about the CNAME but does not provide it (except to an AXFR). Any ideas really welcome, thanks.
