Bind error (network unreachable) resolving

This problem usually occurs when bind is unable to query using a IPV6 network.

 

Apr 3 12:01:58 localhost named[5457]: error (network unreachable) resolving ‘static.ak.facebook.com.edgesuite.net/A/IN’: 2600:1401:2::2#53
Apr 3 12:01:58 localhost named[5457]: error (network unreachable) resolving ‘w.soundcloud.com/A/IN’: 2001:500:90:1::20#53

To avoid this:

-use an IPv6 network

or

-disable IPv6 in Bind

 

Disabling IPV6 in Bind:

/etc/default/bind9

# run resolvconf?
RESOLVCONF=yes

# startup options for the server
OPTIONS=”-4 -u bind”
