[BUG] Power BI DESKTOP <-> DNS

Hello,

 

For some time (11/2020), Power Bi Desktop no longer launches through our corporate network (older versions run without problem).
PowerBi tries to start, consuming resources until the computer crashes.

I first thought about looking on the side of our FireWall. Convinced that new ports were being used. But even by creating a giant colander, PowerBi refuses to connect.

 


It turns out that the BUG is linked to our internal DNS servers (our DNS servers run on WIndows server 2019).
Nothing particular about them (local zone, external redirectors ...)

If, on the pcs of our company, I manually put only a public dns, then Power Bi starts. if I put our dns -> KO.

 

To this day, I have not found the precise cause ...
