Azure DNS Zone - domain not found by nslookup

Felipe Brandão De Oliveira 41 Reputation points


I've created a DNS Zone in Azure and DNS records doesn't seem to work. I tryed pointing them to both public nad private addresses, yet on nslookup command it can't find my domain. I also created an Public IP and created it as an alias to this record but it also didn't work.


DNS request timed out.
timeout was 2 seconds.
*** can't find Non-existent domain

My record is created as this:


Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

    @Felipe Brandão De Oliveira Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    This article provides troubleshooting information for common Azure DNS questions.

    If you get DNS request timed out, close the cmd prompt and re-try it again.

    Note: New DNS zones and DNS records are typically reflected on the Azure DNS name servers quickly, within a few seconds.

    Changes to existing DNS records can take a little longer, but should still be reflected on the Azure DNS name servers within 60 seconds. In this case, DNS caching outside of Azure DNS (by DNS clients and DNS recursive resolvers) can also impact the time taken for a DNS change to be effective. This cache duration can be controlled using the Time-To-Live (TTL) property of each record set.

    In case, if you are getting DNS request timed out, could you re-check the configuration and do let us know.

    There is a similar thread discussion in MSDN and SO thread , Please refer to the suggestion and let me know the status. If the issue still persist, I would like to work closer on this issue

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I've found out that this might be a network issue. I was using my job's network when trying to prompt the DNS zone through nslookup. When i got home later that day, i tested again and it worked accordingly.
