Bind 9.12.x: Potential bug with Dig when Tools installed on Windows
Typing dig www.google.com or simply dig hangs after installation of 9.12.x
Steps to reproduce
- On a Windows box (W10 -1709 here), run the Bind installer and select Tools installation.
- After the redistributable and tools are installed, open a cmd prompt and navigate to the install location.
- Type: dig www.google.com or dig
What is the current bug behavior?
dig hangs and I have to hit ctrl+c to get the cursor back.
What is the expected correct behavior?
Resolve www.google.com's ip.
Now if I type: dig @126.96.36.199 www.google.com, dig works.
On the surface it does not look like dig.exe is looking in the registry to get the nameserver address. Manually creating resolve.conf with a nameserver included in the install folder made no difference. Typing dig.exe would still hang.
The dig.exe included in the 9.11.x branch works as expected.
