comment Server 2012R2 DNS server returning SERVFAIL for some AAAA queries
@yagmoth555 yeah, if I ever find the time to call them about it. Curious if anyone else has 2012R2/2012/2008R2 DNS servers they could test against and see if they get the same error.

@pradeep8985 No, it's a hardware problem. Though it's quite possible for only certain programs to trigger the errors just by being the only program on the computer that happens to access that particular section of memory on a regular basis. But it's not the program's fault.

@yagmoth555 well, I was really hopeful, but after installing that hotfix I still get the SERVFAIL error.

@yagmoth555 nope, hadn't seen that hotfix. Going to try it first thing in the morning.

@joeqwerty I read somewhere it tried for AAAA first and if that doesn't work out it goes to IPv4. Packet captures seem to confirm that. But when it encounters a dns server failure it seems to just give up entirely instead. Which is weird and a stupid design.

@joeqwerty but it shouldnt fail, it should return no records. In dig I get status "SERVFAIL" and nslookup gives "server failure". Not just a no such host error - if it got that exchange would try for the A record.
