[Pdns-users] Cname and Microsoft DNS problem

Hi Bert,

Thank you for response. 
I Tried set --send-root-referral on pdns.conf and powerdns stop to respond to all queries, I verified log and had the follow message: "Fatal error: Trying to set unexisting parameter '--send-root-referral'" , then I tried use send-root-referral parameter and powerdns back to response all queries but microsoft DNS can't consult cname queries like I mentioned.

Is there any special way to setting the parameter send-root-referral?

Best Regards,
André Muraro

Try setting --send-root-referral or send-root-referral in the configuration.

This is a bug in Microsoft DNS then, but 'send-root-referral' should fix it.
Please let us know!
