#115 PTR record synchronization deletes all data under reverse name
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by pspacek.

PTR record synchronization sometimes delete all data under name in reverse tree (e.g.


Forward zone:

test.example.com.       3600 IN  A

Reverse zone: 3600 IN PTR test.example.com. 3600 IN TXT "address reserved for DNS tests"


update delete test.example.com. IN A


Forward zone:

  • Name test.example.com. does not exist.

Reverse zone:

  • Name does not exist.

Reverse zone should contain the original TXT record, only PTR record should be deleted: 3600 IN TXT "address reserved for DNS tests"

The fix was really simple so I sent the patch to the freeipa-devel list.
