TUMBLEWEED nslookup -> system error

I am new here even if I already used Suse “last century” https://forums.opensuse.org/images/icons/icon10.png

2 weeks ago or so (I tried to investigate by myself) I probably modified something(s) in the configs as I cannot use my computer (fortunately I have another one) :

user@mycomputer:-> dig site.domain.tld
Address 1:

nslookup: can’t resolve ‘site.domain.tld’ : System error

If I use another DNS server, f.ex. it doesn’t do any good.

However, if I ues the IP address to dig it or launch a ping, every thing works well.

Please show me the right direction, thanks.

It is rather hard. Your subject says “nslookup”, then you show invocation of “dig” with output that dig never makes - output resembles “nslookup”, but it also is not exactly correct. You show fake domain name which makes it impossible to anyone to try to reproduce your issue.

Start with providing complete command invocations and their full output including subsequent shell prompt for

dig google.com
dig @ google.com
nslookup google.com
nslookup google.com

Do not write manually - copy and paste. Place output in between tags [noparse]



First of all, I would like to thank you for trying to help.

So this is a copy of an ssh session I just launch :

nathan@paulainssd:~> dig microsoft.com
Address 1:

nslookup: can't resolve 'microsoft.com': System error
nathan@paulainssd:~> dig
Address 1:

Address 1:
nathan@paulainssd:~> ping

guilain@paulainssd:~> ping microsoft.com
ping: microsoft.com: Erreur système

As you can see, when a DNS query is involved, I get a system error (or Erreur système in French) and in the case of a DIG the answer is NSLOOKUP : …]

Hope this is what is needed to clarify the matter.

Thanks a lot

All that can be said - your DNS server has some issues. As you ignored my request, we have no idea whether this is something more generic.

Try different DNS server.
