[Dnsmasq-discuss] IPv6 ra-advrouter mode doesn't create the appropriate AAAA records

Hi list,

I'm playing with IPv6 after getting a tunnel from HE. I have
configured dnsmasq as:

domain-needed
resolv-file=/etc/resolv.dnsmasq
strict-order
interface=eth0
interface=lo
no-dhcp-interface=lo
bind-interfaces
expand-hosts
domain=lan
dhcp-range=192.168.0.11,192.168.0.254,255.255.255.0,24h
dhcp-range=<my ipv6 subnet>::, ra-advrouter
enable-ra
dhcp-option=option:router,192.168.0.1
dhcp-option=option:dns-server,192.168.0.10
dhcp-option=option6:dns-server
dhcp-option=option:domain-search,lan
dhcp-option=option:mtu,1472
dhcp-option=option6:domain-search,lan
dhcp-authoritative
cache-size=50000


All machines on my network get IPv6 addresses, but when I try to find
them via DNS request, it fails (doesn't return an AAAA record). But
the corresponding A records exist and they work properly.
This works if I set ra-names mode, but I don't want to use SLAAC.

I'm using DNSMasq v2.72 installed from debian unstable repository.

I'm quite new to IPv6, so don't assume things :)
