DNS query could not be resolved properly.


Unable to use snatpool for cache resolver.


1. dnscache.matchwildcardvip is enabled 2. Multiple possible routes to destination DNS server exist. This can be triggered by either using a gateway pool, or using dynamic routing with multiple equal paths available.


Ensure only a single route to destination exists, or disable dnscache.matchwildcardvip NOTE: With dnscache.matchwildcardvip disabled, snatpool will not be used.
