      Description

      SRV records provide a way for agents to dynamically determine which host to connect to for a given service, eg ca vs compiler vs report server. SRV provides high-availability (the SRV record can contain multiple hosts to connect to) and allows agents to connect to the "closest" host providing that service. Puppet has supported SRV records for awhile, but there were issues due to the global nature of the indirector. As we move to no longer using the indirector for HTTP/REST requests, we should reexamine the issues below and ensure SRV support is first-class.
