RE: Wildcard DNS for OpenShift Origin

Thanks, I did what you said: new ec2 instance (centos7). I installed dnsmasq en dit the configuration of /etc/resolve.conf and of /etc/dnsmasq.conf on the DNS-server.

[root ip-10-0-0-x centos]# dig @52.17.145.x jenkins.apps.example.com (a route to one of my applications)
<<>> DiG 9.9.4-RedHat-9.9.4-18.el7_1.5 <<>> @ jenkins.apps.example.com
; (1 server found)

;jenkins.apps.example.com.    IN    A

jenkins.apps.example.com. 0    IN    A    52.17.145.x (The IP of my DNS-server)

I get an answer so it seems to work but when I'm browsing to my app it does not work. Maybe because I don't have apache in the pod. But that's something what is not clear. It was working when I just described my IP and hostnames in /etc/hosts (on my real computer).
So I would think it should work.

So now I have an instance with the router, some apps with routes and an instance with the DNS-server.

Hi Lorentz,

The reply are  inline.

I have OpenShift v3 installed on an Amazon EC2 instance. The OS is CentOS7. OpenShift contains a router and routes which makes it possible to access services by their hostname.
In my initial configuration I was working like this:
  • I linked a service and a hostname via a route.
  • On my own PC (not the server), I edited /etc/hosts and added the following:
    52.18.247.x myapp.apps.example.com

As fernando pointed , you should use another EC2 instance for DNSMASQ, an instance of 1 vCPU and 512MB of RAM should be enough.
After that , in you machine ( assuming is a linux ), change the /etc/resolv.conf to something like this ( is the public IP of the instance with DNSMASQ )

search apps.example.com

52.18.247.x is my public IP of the amazon instance where my router is running. This was working. So I could acces myapp.apps.example in my browser. But I knew this was not the best way to do it. So I wanted to set up a Wildcard for resolving this issue. I cleared my /etc/hosts on my real pc and went into my amazon instance:
yum install dnsmasq
dnsmasq is running on port 53.
vi /etc/dnsmasq.conf
Than I did a restart:
sudo service dnsmasq restart
But it is not working and I cannot visit my services (apps) in my browser. What am I doing wrong or do I forget to configure something?

All the step you point are OK.
For testing DNSMASQ you could do

# dig @ myapp.apps.example.com

The response should by the ip of the Node running the Router Docker.
