Setting UP recursive DNS server failed


I did try to setup a recursice DNS server like described here:

There is no pi-hole.conf file @ link /etc/unbound/unbound.conf.d/pi-hole.conf
Do I have to create this manually?

The service can also not be startet. I got error

Job for unbound.service failed. See ‘systemctl status unbound.service’ and ‘jour nalctl -xn’ for details.

systemctl status unbound.service
● unbound.service - (null)

Many thanks



Problem solved,

I had to create manually a pi.hole.conf file, now everything is work as expected.

I’d suggest in the article to say a word , that the pi-hole.conf file has to be created with vi or nano that it’s clear, that this file is not delivered by setup.

Thank you



As you thought you have to create the pi-hole.conf file and what you use to do that is up to you.
