Previously, the parameter DNS Server of Check DNS service rule was broken. The options this host and default DNS Server would both do the same: They would use the default DNS server(s) specified inside of /etc/resolve.conf. With this werk, the option this host now (again) will use the address of the host on which the service is generated. Secondly, the rule has been reworked to be more concise.

Intervention is necessary if

  • you have explicitely set the DNS Server to this host and
  • want your site to operate in the same fashion as before.

In this case, you can set the option DNS Server to Use the default DNS server(s) specified in /etc/resolv.conf.
