- Does Java query the next
resolv.confname server entry if the first one fails or times out?
- What is the default timeout at which Java will consider a resolver "down"?
/etc/resolv.conf, in most sites, there are multiple DNS servers configured for use by the system. Can anyone clarify what happens, with Java, if the first DNS server in the list fails? For example, imagine the following
nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52
If 184.108.40.206 becomes unreachable then will Java try 220.127.116.11? In our experience it does not - we saw many threads waiting to resolve DNS names even though the backup DNS servers were reachable.
