Question

Droplet can not find my spaces host

Sometimes my droplet with Ubuntu 18.04 loses connection with spaces:

ping myspacesname.fra1.digitaloceanspaces.com
ping: myspacesname.fra1.digitaloceanspaces.com: Name or service not known

It almost completely breaks my site.

If I flush DNS cache with sudo systemd-resolve --flush-caches it helps for a few minutes and then doesn’t work again.

After some time, probably more than an hour, everything starts working just fine.

Has anyone encountered such a problem?

Hi there,

Did you experience this just today? As far as I can see there has been scheduled network maintenance reported on the status page:

https://status.digitalocean.com/incidents/s2v34ltwsmml

If this is happening regularly, have you tried pining other domains during this time to identify if it is a problem specifically with the spaces hostname or DNS lookups in general?
