Cannot connect managed Redis via redli - no such host

DigitalOcean Managed Redis

I’ve tried to create multiple managed redis databases in multiple regions. All have the same issue.

I’m using redli, the recommended CLI for redis.

Whenever I try the connection string as provided in “Connection details - flags”, I keep seeing the following error

2019/10/24 15:17:15 Dial dial tcp: lookup db-redis-nyc1-xxxxxxxx.db.ondigitalocean.com: no such host

If do nslookup to the database host, it always returns no records. In fact if I do nslookup db.ondigitalocean.com, it returns

Server:         127.0.0.53
Address:        127.0.0.53#53

Non-authoritative answer:
*** Can't find db.ondigitalocean.com: No answer

Any ideas? Seems like for some reason I can’t get any DNS records connecting the DB host to the server.

It has magically started working now

I have just created a managed MySQL cluster and have the same problem. DNS is not working for both public and private db hostnames.
