It’s literally the backbone of Active Directory deployments. Here’s a list of things that his company’s network design probably breaks: * Office 365 (cloud Exchange hosting by Microsoft; requires you use SRV records to get your company’s clients pointed to their cloud infrastructure) * LDAP * SIP * XMPP * CALDAV / CARDDAV * SMTP, IMAP, and POP clients should also obey published SRV records. Not sure how many clients really do, though. * Teamspeak 3 doesn’t force you to use SRV, but you can use only SRV records * Minecraft * Last I knew IRCv4 specs are slated to include SRV as a core feature I can’t speak for the caching issues, but SRV is pretty active and only getting more popular because things like “round robin DNS” are a horrible, ugly, unreliable hack and things like Anycast or Geo-DNS isn’t always feasible. -0.02c _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
