Hello, I am trying to better understand the --setup-dns option and I am going through the Red Hat documentation on IPA as my source. This script generates a bunch of DNS redirects for the named server. I don't quite understand everything it does, but I am curious because I would prefer to use DNSMasq over named/dhcpd/tftpd. I am struggling trying to get named/dhcpd/tftpd to work anywhere close to the level that DNSMasq works for me.
 http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Identity_Management_Guide/index.html#Preparing_for_an_IPA_Installation-DNS The exact problem I am working with is this: If I setup DNSMasq and follow the Red Hat documentation for 6.2 but I do not pass the --setup-dns option then when I try to install the clients they fail because they can't find the services on the network even when I try to force point them to the server. However, if I follow the guide step by step it turns out differently; it works. I disabled DNSMasq, installed named, and passed the --setup-dns option. The clients were then able to autodetect the server without problems. So then IPA works as expected but nothing else on the network does. Obviously the bind configuration is the designed implementation for IPA but I am spending far more of my time trying to get named/dhcpd/tftpd working acceptably then I have available. DNSMasq works great for me if I could figure out how to replicate the --setup-dns option in it. I am really hoping someone might be able to give me a few pointers in replicating the IPA named configuration in DNSMasq. Thank you! PS. I originally sent to the wrong list (devel). I greatly apologize. I was looking at the devel list doing research and grabbed the wrong email.
