Description Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2011-12-09 10:00:51 CET
Beim Anlegen eines Pointer-Records in einer Reverse-DNS-Zone wird nach einer "Adresse" gefragt. Dort darf man aber nicht die vollständige IP(v4)-Adresse angeben, sondern muß die relative-Adresse in Reverse-Order angeben, für die IPv4-Adresse in der Zone 20.10.in.addr-arpa. also 40.30.
Comment 1 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2012-12-05 11:14:42 CET
Ähnliches auch bei CNAMEs: Dort kann man auch ungültige Host-Namen angeben (bei mir war es apt..knut.univention.de.). Aufgefallen ist das nur bei einem Zone-Transfer, wo besagter falscher RR dann fehlte.
Comment 2 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2015-11-10 16:47:20 CET
For IPv6 entering the reverse IPv6 address in nibble format is very error prone
Comment 3 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2016-10-17 13:34:31 CEST
As this bug requires a API change → UCS-4.2
Comment 4 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2016-11-21 06:18:23 CET
This is much worse:

Some of our Jenkins setups fail now. See here for example:

See also Bug #35254 with the same symptoms (Bug #35438). If I remember correctly, the joinscripts of S4 are creating "invalid" entries.

> There are more test results which might be caused by these changes:

It looks like that it breaks all of our Jenkins tests or at least a lot of test environments. Since we will release an UCS@school release next week, please revert your changes.

r74751 | Bug #25354 udm: Validate DNS domain name syntax UCS-4.2-0
 There's a new syntax class dnsHostname now used for SOA.primary/NS/SRV.location/MX.server, which checks for valid "host names", while dnsName was relaxed to allow any DNS label/name.
 - RFC2181: DNS allows everything:
   - 1<=|label|<=63
   - 1<=|total|<=253 (+ trailing dot + 1 byte for length -> max 255)
   - All-digits are allowed, as long as the TLD is not-all-numeric
 - RFC5321: SMTP restricts hostnames to Letter-Digits-Hyphen

Comment 14 Florian Best univentionstaff 2016-12-21 15:48:42 CET
OK: dns/forward zone|reverse zone nameserver
OK: computers/* dnsEntryZoneAlias (stripping trailing dot)
~OK: Wrong: container/dc dnsForwardZone uses dnsName while the values are DN's but it's not create-able and editable at all.
OK: dns/txt_record
OK: dns/srv_record (removal of location.server not possible)
OK: dns/host_record (name, MX)
OK: dns/ptr_record (the tooltip says that trailing dot is required, while it isn't enforced)
OK: dns/alias (name, CNAME)
OK: mail/domain

I get the following error if I want to add a DNS forward zone named "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.":
The LDAP object could not be saved: LDAP Error Other (e.g., implementation specific) error

Prior to this it was:
Zone name: Invalid DNS zone name! (Must not end with a ".", only "0"-"9", "A"-"Z", "a"-"z", and "-" allowed)

→ OK: No real regression
OK: UCS 4.2 merge
Comment 15 Florian Best univentionstaff 2016-12-22 18:30:35 CET
I oversaw two commits in my QA which were done with the wrong bug number.

univention-directory-manager-modules (12.0.7-1):
r74606 | Bug #26354 udm: Implement dns.ptr search
r74605 | Bug #26354 udm: Validate dns.ptr
Comment 16 Florian Best univentionstaff 2016-12-23 15:27:29 CET
This works very nice, especially that the whole IP is now shown in UMC!
There are two commits only in UCS 4.2 and we are releasing this as 4.1-1 errata. IMO okay, the bug is mentioned in both YAML and changelog correctly.

I added a missing translation:
