1) should each dns cache server be configured a static
default route (0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0)? If server-(1,3) is
configured statically to use
router-1 as default router, will Quagga make it use
router-2 when router-1 is not reachable?
Servers a cheaper than good routers... Why don't you just have your dns
server connected to one router.... If you want dns servers on multiple
subnets, spend a couple of grand and get a cheap 1U dell server for
your other rack... Why do you need to worry about default routes? You
are running a dynamic routing protocol on your dns server. Anycast dns
pretty much relies on ospf working... Hell, you don't need any default
gateway on your host... Let you quagga worry about routing...
2) If each server is configured two default router (
router-2), or each server learn route 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
by OSPF ( our border router inject default route into
OSPF ); there should be
two equal cost path to 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 on each DNS
server, the DNS server should disperse any outgoing
packets onto the two paths, will
that do harm to DNS service ?
Set up your ospf area as an nssa.... Your dns server only needs to
LEARN default from the connected routers... You will be doing a 7-5
conversion on your asbrs.
What does bind care? We are talking unicast... If the packet can get to
your dns server, bind can probably get the answer back. You are making
this much more difficult than it needs to be....
3) Is there any requirement on BIND to fit to such
multipath routing situation?
