What happens(happened) to "mongodb.net"?

mongodb.net” is not accessible, therefore no connection is working with links in that domain.

unknown host mongodb.net

Is this domain closed?

I was away from MDB for sometime, and come see if someone from old threads needs helps as I still get notifications.

One of them has a connection problem and nslookup and other tools show that there is no known host for this address.

If this domain is closed permanently, please send a global message to all users/developers.

And since I did not get any such notification, I am hoping this is temporary. If not, it is very serious problem and needs urgent attention from staff.

Any clusters are subdomains of mongodb.net so this would be expected behavior.

Atlas connections stings are SRV and TXT records and have to be queried specifically for those. The cluster servers are hosted on subdomains.

And of course the cluster and the dns entries for it could have been deleted.

As you can see everything is working fine. My M0 records for example:

dig +short txt cluster0.9qfvh.mongodb.net
dig +short srv _mongodb._tcp.cluster0.9qfvh.mongodb.net
0 0 27017 cluster0-shard-00-02.9qfvh.mongodb.net.
0 0 27017 cluster0-shard-00-01.9qfvh.mongodb.net.
0 0 27017 cluster0-shard-00-00.9qfvh.mongodb.net.
for h in $(dig +short srv _mongodb._tcp.cluster0.9qfvh.mongodb.net | cut -d' ' -f 4)
do dig +short ${h}

This part is new for me. So there is always new things to discover.

so “dig mongodb.net” command is actually enough to see the domain is active but it just needs special care.

Thanks @chris
