I have FreeIPA setup as our primary DNS on an AWS VPC. I setup global
forwarding ('Forward First') so that it will forward queries to Amazon's
DNS, and then fall back on IPA if it doesn't see a hit.
This works perfectly fine for forward DNS lookups:
$ # This host does not exist on FreeIPA, but does on Amazon DNS
$ host ip-10-0-6-17.ec2.internal
ip-10-0-6-17.ec2.internal has address 10.0.6.17
However, for reverse lookups, it doesn't seem to get forwarded
$ # Same host, reverse lookup fails at FreeIPA
$ host 10.0.6.17
Host 18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa. not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
$ # Explicitly forwarding to Amazon DNS, reverse lookup works
$ host 10.0.6.17 10.0.0.2
Using domain server:
22.214.171.124.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer ip-10-0-6-17.ec2.internal.
Please help. Thanks!
