[Unbound-users] Interesting issue

Hi Steve,

The caches are not accepting queries from the new point?
Possibly resolv.conf on the server does not point to but
elsewhere (which does work somehow), which explains why it can resolve
but the others cannot.

With tcpdump or wireshark see if queries get replies from those two
caches, and that those replies contain valid data.

Or use dig for troubleshooting queries across your network.

Best regards,
