Opened: Sep 23, 2013
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Network access from browser or Edge Client on Mac does not change system DNS configuration the way that the nslookup and dig utilities expect. Once network access is established, the nslookup and dig utilities do not utilize DNS servers and DNS search suffixes set by SSL VPN.

Impact

The system should behave as expected except for the nslookup, dig, and host utilites.

Conditions

NA access with DNS servers and DNS search suffixes, Network Access from browser or Edge Client on Mac OS X.

Workaround

None

Fix Information

The nslookup, host and dig utilities are now able to use DNS server and DNS search suffixes set by SSL-VPN.

Behavior Change
