IST DNS

The University of Waterloo's DNS is managed through Infoblox.

People who have access to Infoblox:

  • ztseguin
  • jxpryde

CSC DNS

CSC hosts some authoritative dns services on ext-dns1.csclub.uwaterloo.ca (129.97.134.4/2620:101:f000:4901:c5c::4) and ext-dns2.csclub.uwaterloo.ca (129.97.18.20/2620:101:f000:7300:c5c::20).

Current authoritative domains:

  • csclub.cloud
  • uwaterloo.club
  • csclub.uwaterloo.ca: A script (/opt/bindify/update-dns on dns1) runs every 10 minutes to populate this zone from the Infoblox records.
  • Any zone added to Designate DNS service on CSC Cloud


Those DNS servers are also recursive for machines located on the University network.

Miscellaneous

LOC Records

If we really cared, we might add a LOC record for csclub.uwaterloo.ca.

SSHFP

We could look into SSHFP records. Apparently OpenSSH supports these. (Discussion moved to Talk:DNS.)
