In a previous post after installing unbound there's the solution to my first relevant issue after installing unbound.
Couple of things still bug me:
- whereas "ping" with a shortname works (because the local resolver will add the domain before querying the dns), a direct dig query with a shortname still goes to root and of course fails. The same goes, of course, when the shortname is entered in the configuration of a program, say transgui.
I thought I had to change "option domain" in unbound.conf from the default "lan" to my own localdomain but the documentation says the option is ignored when link is dnsmasq and I've found that to be correct.
Any ideas? Is this the expected behaviour?
- in a parallel scenario, unbound is asking dnsmasq for dhcp-assigned entries and the reply is listed as non-authoritative, which is technically correct since unbound did not have first-hand information.
Is there a way to tell unbound that queries to dnsmasq for local domain can be considered authoritative?
