Serving FQDNs with dnsmasq
[ This list may not be the most appropriate for this question, but I bet
that someone here may have had to fight this before. Also, the
following includes some generic question regarding NetBSD and hostnames,
so it's on-topic ;-) ]
Despite of what other systems appear to do, it seems to me that NetBSD
wants the hostname definition to be FQDN. Up until recently, I've had
my little server with a hardcoded hostname=mini.julipedia.org in
/etc/rc.conf and all was good. For example, postfix could infer the
"mydomain" value by itself.
However, I've now started using a router that runs dd-wrt, and have set
up dnsmasq on it to act as a dhcp server. The dhcp server is handing
out leases like the following:
Domain-Name Option 15, length 13: "julipedia.org"
Hostname Option 12, length 4: "mini"
which result in my NetBSD box getting a hostname value of "mini" instead
of the FQDN one. This, in turn, breaks the default configuration of
postfix and I believe many other things.
The dnsmasq configuration currently on the router looks like:
Is it correct to assume that hostname should be a FQDN? If so, what
magic do I have to apply to dnsmasq to hand off such names in the
(I know I can add some supersede stanzas to dhclient.conf to reject the
hostname option. But I'd rather not do that.)
