No SRV records are resolved by PowerDNS servers registered in Operations Automation.

PowerDNS version in use is 3.4.10.

Log records of pdns service, normally in /var/log/messages, show the following errors:

pdns[11747]: Exception: All data was not consumed
pdns[11747]: Exception building answer packet (All data was not consumed) sending out servfail


PowerDNS version 3.4.10 is sensible to a white space character added to SRV records content by OA. Earlier PowerDNS versions are not affected by the problem.


Use the PowerDNS version, officially supported by Operations Automation, i.e. available in native OS repositories:
