Thank you to the following:
Basically they all told me to wary of netscape/solaris caching taking
effect here. While an nslookup will re-query and come up with a new
answer, a reload on a browser will just use the same answer it has in
This is more of a DNS question than a Solaris question, but perhaps
someone out here can help.
I am using round robin dns to bounce between 3 webservers.
I have set up a virtual www which then bounces between three actual
servers. We can call them A, B and C.
And this works, when I do a nslookup I rotate between all three IP's
(as I should).
Now, my question is when one of the three is down, for example C, and
go to the url www - I get a not found error. I don't understand why.
If I go to A.web.com I get the page back, and if I go to B.web.com I
get the page back. And, if I go to C.web.com (as expected) I get the
not found error.
So, when I put in www, how come I always get the not found error? Why
don't I get a page back 2/3 of the time - as I expected as the www
bounces between the three A,B, and C?
