I am running NTP client which triggers A/AAA DNS lookup upon configuring hostname. I did the following configuration
- Configured DNS client and NTP client which has a common DNS/NTP server.
- Configured the hostname.
Once doing that the NTP Client starts sending DNS A/AAA query for localhost.
Wondering if it is a expected behavior ? whats the reason behind it ?
Is there a way we can prevent this DNS queries for localhost ?
My ntp client config:
interface ignore wildcard interface listen eth0.0001 restrict default ignore restrict -6 default ignore restrict 127.0.0.1 nomodify noserve notrap nopeer restrict ::1 nomodify noserve notrap nopeer server 192.168.20.77 version 4 minpoll 6 maxpoll 10 restrict 192.168.20.77 nomodify notrap nopeer noquery pidfile /var/run/ntpd.pid driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift ~
