Hello, After posting a question on Serverfault.com I thought that this list may be more suitable as my problem seems to really be a configuration issue.
I have a `CNAME` set up in dnsmasq as cname=ch1-lampe-bureau.swtk.info,switch-3 It is resolved correctly (`switch-3` is a device which gets its IP via DHCP from dnsmasq): root@rpi1 ~# host switch-3 switch-3 has address 10.200.0.123 root@rpi1 ~# host ch1-lampe-bureau.swtk.info ch1-lampe-bureau.swtk.info is an alias for switch-3. switch-3 has address 10.200.0.123 I then wanted to make dnsmasq authoritative for my domain by adding auth-zone=swtk.info auth-server=rpi1.swtk.info auth-peer=192.168.0.13 Zone-transfer wise, it works: `192.168.0.13` can transfer the zone. But the resolution of `CNAME`s stopped. I can still resolve `A` records (`switch-3` above for instance), `CNAME`s are not. root@rpi1 ~# host switch-3 switch-3 has address 10.200.0.123 root@rpi1 ~# host ch1-lampe-bureau.swtk.info Host ch1-lampe-bureau.swtk.info not found: 3(NXDOMAIN) What is the relationship between dnsmasq being authoritative and its abilty to resolve its `CNAME`s?* Note: this is an internal DNS, with no relationship with the `swtk.info` domain registered externally.
