DNS v2 missing key functionality



When the old DNS sensor checked a domain name, the result could match one of several IP addresses. The new DNS v2 only allows one IP address or range to be verified as an acceptable return result. If the old DNS sensor is going to be removed, please enable the DNS v2 to allow a selection of IP addresses as possible return results for a DNS lookup. DNS lookups often return multiple IP addresses as options.

We are already looking into this. :) So filtering will be possible with the DNSv2 Sensor, however there's no ETA yet.
