I host an ubuntu server at a data center and worked well for years till last night the server can not ping itself by host name. No config has been changed. Here are what it can/can not do now.
- From outside, I can ping the server both by its static IP, and by its hostname.
- From server, I can ping any website (google, yahoo, ...).
- From server, I can ping localhost, and can ping the IP of server itself.
- From server, I can not ping sever itself by its hostname.
source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto enp5s0 iface enp5s0 inet static address xxx.xxx.xxx.134 netmask 255.255.255.128 broadcast xxx.xxx.xxx.255 gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.129 dns-nameservers 192.168.1.1 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199

nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199
and the output of
route -n is:
Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 0.0.0.0 xxx.xxx.xxx.129 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 enp5s0 xxx.xxx.xxx.128 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.128 U 0 0 0 enp5s0 172.17.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 docker0
These configs worked for years. Wondering what happened? Thanks.
