lately we have a problem regarding prtg.
some servers keep asking the dns server for our prtg's ip. below there is an output that we face. It gives a major source management issue for our dns server.
15:50:28.291869 IP KVM.42437 > dc.xxx.yyy.domain: 29576+ A? prtg.xxx.yyy (50)
15:50:28.291881 IP KVM.42437 > dc.xxx.yyy.domain: 2703+ AAAA? prtg.xxx.yyy (50)
15:50:28.294605 IP dc.xxx.yyy.domain > KVM.42437: 29576* 1/0/0 A 10.10.aaa.bbb (66)
15:50:28.294936 IP dc.xxx.yyy.domain > KVM.42437: 2703* 0/1/0 (105)
it keeps repeating approximately every 30 seconds, doesn't matter if we use ping sensor, ssh sensor or snmp sensor.
if i write our prtg server's ip to /etc/hosts file problem stops right away. but i want to find another solution.
can I set prtg to use only its ip to reach servers not its dns name? that's the solution I was wondering about.
any help would be appreciated
