DNSWatch error


This night/morning DNS Watch decided to brake dns queries from my internal MS dns servers. My DNS server(s) could not validate my dns forwarders so no dns resolution worked.

I disabled DNS Watch on my Firebox V and all dns server validation started to work and dns flow are flowing noamally again.

I am located in the EU zone. Is there a issue with DNS Watch?

    For sure there was an issue. We had to disable DNS Watch on a couple Firebox T and M with angry customers. Those fireboxes were not updated to latest firmware. Other fireboxes did not block DNS, maybe in latest firmware there is a mitigation to DNS Watch failure.
