public dns for codfw1dev vms
Open, MediumPublic


We plan on naming eqiad instances * For codfw1dev do we want to register or something like that?

Event Timeline

From my understanding of is that we could replicate the model we use with * and introduce subdomain per deployment:


Because you are thinking on floating IPs and other proxied FQDNs, right?

Anyway, I don't think it is a big deal to don't use subdomains at all, and identify the [very few] uses we have in codfw1dev with a keyword:

  • (eqiad1)
  • (codfw1dev)

The agreed instance naming plan from is to use *.{deployment}

In practice this would mean <host>.<project>.<deployment> as the FQDN for an instance:

  • bastion-eqiad1-01.bastion.eqiad.wmflabs would become
  • would become

We should completely stop making the <host>.<deployment>.<domain> DNS entries that we have kept to match the legacy naming convention that was used before introducing per-project subdomains.

For Public (floating) addresses we resolved to use * and subdomains for deployments outside of eqiad1:

  • would become
  • would become
  • A bastion in codfw1dev would be

We need to do some thinking on our strategy for rolling out the new domains and naming conventions for instances in eqiad1. For codfw1dev we should fix all the existing naming I think as soon as someone has the time to do so.

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2020-01-28T09:53:13Z] <arturo> the DNS zone now belongs to this project (T242976)

There is an Icinga alert since about 11 hours that the IP " " is down.

This is in Icinga just as an IP address not a hostname. So i resolved it manually and found ""

Then searching Phabricator for "codfw1dev" i found this ticket but no recent updates.

Is there ongoing work / should i be able to find something in SAL?

Should this be a hostname and not an IP in Icinga? Do people get email notifications about this?

@Dzahn this is a new host currently under construction. Not related to this task especially.
