Query refused for recursive DNS lookup in Infoblox


I recently configured my lab DNS infoblox server in a grid and setup some authoritative forward-mapping zones on it for my lab web-servers;

The DNS queries for the authoritative zones were working fine;

I then configured the DNS grid with 8.8.8.8 as a forwarder;

But the recursive queries were getting refused;

This happens because, by default, the DNS grid is configured to deny any recursive queries that is received;

After allowing recursive queries from my source subnet, DNS grid started resolving google.com;

When adding a forwarder in your infoblox grid, ensure recursive queries are allowed as well. They can be allowed for any subnet, in my case since it is a lab setup I restricted it to just 192.168.1.0/24 for test purposes.
