DNS Tools & Diagnostics


Dns tools diagnostics

DNS Tools & Diagnostics

  • Dig always available with BIND (*nix) and windows

  • Nslookup available on windows and *nix

  • Dig on windows – unpack zip, copy only dig.exe, libbind9.dll, libdns.dll, libisc.dll, libisccfg.dll, liblwres.dll to portable media

  • SamSpade.org provides windows GUI utility with dig. Freeware.


Module 8

DIG

  • Command line tool – tons of options

  • Powerful – gives precise DNS RRs

  • Typically only available with BIND

  • Casual use on Windows

    • Unpack Windows zip file

    • Copy to portable media dig.exe, libbind9.dll, libdns.dll, libisc.dll, libisccfg.dll, liblwres.dll

  • Google for SamSpade.org GUI DNS tools including DIG


Dig command format

Dig Command Format

  • Tons of options to govern formatting and behavior

    • -x required for reverse lookup

  • @dns = optionally defines the name or IP of name server to send the query – default is locally defined DNS (typically recursive)

  • target-name = name required

  • type = RR type (default is A) Additional pseudo types any and axfr

dig [opts] [@dns] target-name type


Dig commands

Dig Commands

dig www.example.com

Returns A RR of www.example.com using local DNS

dig @ns1.example.com www.example.com

Returns A RR of www.example.com using using ns1.example.com authoritative name server for domain

dig www.example.com any

Returns any RRs with label of www.example.com using local DNS

dig –x 192.168.2.5

Returns reverse lookup for 192.168.2.5 using local DNS


Dig command

DIG command

dig @ns1.example.com www.example.com


Dig response

DIG Response

; <<>> DiG 9.4.1-P1 <<>> ns1.example.com www.example.com

;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 49319

;; flags: qr rd ra aa; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 2, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 2

Dig response1

DIG Response

  • May contain up to 5 sections

  • Header – flags, status, id

  • QUESTION SECTION

    • The query

  • ANSWER SECTION

    • Present only if successful

  • AUTHORITY SECTION

    • One or more name servers

  • ADDITIONAL SECTION

    • Typically A/AAAA RRs of name servers


Dns flag values

DNS Flag Values

QR – Query response received. Indicates direction of query

AA - Authoritative Answer. Set if the response was received from a zone master or slave.

TC - TrunCation - length greater than permitted, set on all truncated messages except the last one.

RD - Recursion Desired - set in a query and copied into the response if recursion supported.

RA - Recursion Available - valid in a response and if set denotes recursive query support is available.

AD - Authenticated Data. DNSSEC only. Indicates that the data was reliably authenticated.

CD - Checking Disabled. DNSSEC only. Disables checking at the receiving server.


Dns status values

DNS Status Values

0 = NOERR. No error.

1 = FORMERR. Format error - the server was unable to interpret the query.

2 = SERVFAIL – name server problem or lack of information. Often also returned with the same meaning as REFUSED.

3= NXDOMAIN Name does not exist - meaningful only from an authoritative name server.

4 = NOTIMPL Not Implemented.

5 = REFUSED - typically for policy reasons, for example, a zone transfer request.


Dig result

DIG Result

  • No errors (NOERROR)

  • Flags query response, recursion desired, recursion available, authoritative

  • Answer = 2 A RRs for the web server

  • Authority = 2 name servers

  • Additional = 2 A RRs of name servers


Dig commands1

DIG commands

dig @a.root-servers.net www.example.com

Dig response3

DIG Response

  • No error = NOERROR

  • Status = query response, recursion desired

  • No answer section

  • Authority = multiple

  • Additional = multiple A RRs

  • This is a referral


Nslookup

NSLOOKUP

  • Available on windows and with BIND (*nix)

  • Command line and interactive mode

  • Default pretty print output

  • Useful quick check

  • depends on mindset

    • Detailed data or overview

    • Use –d2 option for RRs

nslookup [opts] target [dns]


Nslookup commands

NSLOOKUP Commands

nslookup -type=MX example.com

Gets mail server records for example.com using locally defined name server

nslookup 192.168.2.1

Gets reverse mapped name for 192.168.2.1

nslookup www.example.com ns1.example.com

Gets A RR for www.example.com using name server ns1.example.com

nslookup

Enter interactive mode – exit to terminate


Nslookup1

NSLOOKUP

# nslookup www.example.com

Server: ns1.example.net

Address: 192.168.6.73

Name: www.example.com

Address: 192.168.2.80

# nslookup www.example.com ns1.example.com

Server: ns1.example.com

Address: 192.168.2.53

Name: www.example.com

Address: 192.168.2.80


Additional tools bind

Additional Tools - BIND

  • named-checkzone, named-checkconf – validation utilities

  • Rndc, rndc-confgen – remote control of name server (optionally secure)

  • nsupdate - Dynamic Update (DDNS) of DNS RRs

  • dnssec-keygen, dnssec-signzone – secure DNS cryptographic tools


Dns logging

DNS Logging

  • BIND defaults to syslog (*nix)

  • BIND Controlled by logging clause

  • Windows DNS Event log via DNS console or Event log (DNS)

    • Debug log default systemroot\System32\Dns\Dns.log (text file) DNS console Properties->logging


Bind log analysis

BIND Log Analysis

  • stream log carefully (category)

  • single or multiple logs

  • watch log size! (use version/size)

  • iterate based on experience

  • post processing tools

  • know what a normal log looks like
