Error "Unknown error response (203)" and ProxySG appliance cannot resolve DNS lookup

ProxySG Software - SGOS


The ProxySG appliance sometimes cannot resolve a DNS for a specific URL. The #test dns <URL> command responds with Unknown error response (203).


The issue might be caused by the ProxySG appliance writing the DNS cache to a disk with errors. Check the disk or the SCSI for errors, for example:
Storage400.5.5.1 00010002:04320002 
Storage400.5.5.2 411,834,672,517

Take the disk offline to resolve the DNS query. You might have to reinitialize the disk or an RMA.
