            Bug ID: 221760
           Summary: freebsd-update problems with some picky DNS
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: conf
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: mgiunti at gmail.com

Sometimes freebsd-update can't work because some DNS do not resolve domain with
upcase chars.

Error I get:

# freebsd-update fetch
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 1 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from update1.FreeBSD.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.


Edit /etc/freebsd-update.conf and change following line:

ServerName update.FreeBSD.org


ServerName update.freebsd.org

I know this is not exactly a FreeBSD problem, but it can prevent system updates
on certain providers.
