I have a question,
after installing pi-hole in my dhcpcd.conf I see the following line
which means the servers own dhcp server is localhost.
The issue here is that when pi-hole doens’t work and dns won’t start pi-hole isn’t able to update so it is unable to repear itself using
why not add fallback dns here like
static domain_name_servers=127.0.0.1 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
where the fallbacks are the selected nameservers for pi-hole.
I just had this issue after some stupid mistake I made and I changed the setting here to 220.127.116.11 so I was able to fix pihole.
I can imagine others have the same issue,
Also you might can send those alternative dns server to the client using dhcp, so if only dns fails and dhcp works, users can still use the internet.
If this last think is a security concern, it would be a solution to make this configurable
With kind regards.
