DNS Problem

I am having problems with a site that is not resolving DNS for WLAN clients (192.168.100.x), however, DNS is configured properly and works properly from the controller CLI.   I have serveral sites with identical configurations and have never seen this issue before.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


The site in question has a 650 controller running ArubaOS  Here are my DNS entries from the configs (the x.x.x.x's are confirmed working DNS servers):


ip dhcp pool 172-AP-pool
 dns-server x.x.x.x  x.x.x.x  

ip dhcp pool guest
 dns-server x.x.x.x  x.x.x.x

Re: DNS Problem

Does the role that the clients are being place into allow DNS?


Do a "show user-table" and note the role for any of the users.  Then, do "show rights <role name>" and make sure there is an ACL entry that either allows all traffic or at least allows svc-dns (and is above any rules that might deny that same traffic... ACLs are processed in top down order - first match).

Re: DNS Problem

Can you reach the DNS server from the client with ping / traceroute? The server may be working but you could have a NAT issue. Was this site working previoulsy? I'm also guessing that the controller has a routable public IP. The clients are getting the correct DNS as well I assume.
