Fortigate 201E FortiOS 6.4.2 - DNS query to restricted site stopped logging


I have a Fortigate 201E that has been logging DNS responses when they are denied for some reason.  OS was upgraded to 6.4.2 on 10/25/2020.  Just recently quit properly logging.


Typically the log was hit due to a restricted destination such as social media.  Filtering still operates properly, just no log entry when a restricted site is accessed.


If I enable all DNS logging, then all responses, included those denied, are properly logged.



Also, when a domain is restricted, previously you would get a nice screen indicating that the Fortigate is what is blocking the request.  Now there is only text and the graphics provided by are missing.  When I try to traceroute to, I cannot get to the site.
