  • How is nslookup <service_name> resolved?
    1 project | | 28 Nov 2021
    Within a kubernetes container, the /etc/resolv.conf file is configured to point to a custom DNS server (or servers) that kubernetes manages. You can inspect this file pretty easily by execing into a pod and viewing the file. This file's contents will likely differ from the kube host's /etc/resolv.conf file, or any other computer you manage. Kubernete's managed dns server is configured to resolve dns queries against the service and/or pod directories. If a query can't be matched to a record, usually the managed dns server then queries another dns server. Usually this kubernetes-managed dns server is a [coreDNS]( server configured for a kubernetes cluster specifically, but one can [use their own configuration if they desire](
  • A call to the open source community for help!
    2 projects | | 21 Nov 2021
    Hi there! I turn to the open source community for help and advice to stop unfriendly and unprofessional behavior of the CoreDNS project member, Miek Gieben. I created a first pull request to add a new DNS-over-HTTPS plugin to the CoreDNS project. But instead of a constructive dialogue I received rude statements and demands from Miek Gieben. I answered all his questions but he closed my PR without any comments! To be more reasoned, I will point out the things that offended me: * Unfriendly speech and disrespect: * Miek Gieben rudely closed PR without any explanation or answers to the questions that were asked of him Unprofessional: * This comment demonstrates ignorance or unwillingness to read the original RFC * This comment demonstrates ignorance of basic TLS fundamentals
