I have a rather large setup (some 2500+ hosts) all getting dhcp from
I have 10 buildings all setup with dhcp-relay and such to get them back
to the main one.
My question is:
I do not understand why requests are getting sent to the recursor when
they do not exist..
so say for example I have the internal domain name .pcsd and each
building has a subdomain bldg1.pcsd, bldg2.pcsd..
(each building has its own config) and we block unknowns from requesting
dhcp so we have a large file with all the dhcp-host entries in it that
each building config includes..
Here is a basic entry from one of the files..
and if dnsmasq serves the domain war.pcsd I do not need to put in an
entry like this:
yet, with the entry in or out if I do this:
and then check the query.log for the recursor (bind in this case) it
will show me that bind was asked for the entry. Even though I directly
Is this intended?
Or do I have something in one of my configs that is helping me shoot
myself in the foot..
Thanks in advance.
