I am trying to understand the behaviour of conf-dir parameter. Although I am running dnsmasq inside openwrt, this is more a dnsmasq question than openwrt question.
I have conf-dir=/tmp/dnsmasq.d This directory CAN contain files or not. The files, when exists, are created by the init scripts of two other services (nextdns and stubby) When nextdns it creates 20-nextdns.conf and send a SIGHUP to dnsmasq ( reload ). The content of the conf file is: # cat /var/dnsmasq.d/20-nextdns.conf server=127.0.0.1#5342 strict-order no-resolv >From this moment on , the new requests will use nextdns server as upstream (127.0.0.1 port 5432) as expected. Now if I start the stubby service, it will create /var/dnsmasq.d/30-stubby.conf and reload dnsmasq. # cat /var/dnsmasq.d/30-stubby.conf server=127.0.0.1#5453 strict-order no-resolv Now we have two files inside the conf-dir. Question number 1: Since we have strict-order, what server should be used? The one from the 20-nextdns.conf or the one from 30-stubby.conf ? I suppose the order is alphabetical, right ? Now comes the odd part. If I stop nextdns, the init script will delete the /var/dnsmasq.d/20-nextdns.conf and reload dnsmasq. As expected, the only upstream server will be the one from 30-stubby.conf ( 127.0.0.1#5453 ). BUT if i start nextdns again, it will create the /var/dnsmasq.d/20-nextdns.conf again and reload dnsmasq again. But now, dnsmasq will not start using the dns from 20-nextdns.conf ( 127.0.0.1#5342 ). It will keep using the DNS from 30-stubby.conf ( 127.0.0.1#5453). Question 2: Shouldn't dnsmasq on reload respect the strict-order and start using the dns from 20-nextdns.conf instead of keeping using the one from 30-stubby.conf ? Thanks!
