Description Jon Fautley 2007-11-20 13:34:12 UTC
dnsmasq as started from libvirtd does not register DHCP leases in the DNS cache,
or pass a default domain name.

It would be very useful to be able to pass a domain name to dnsmasq on a per
virtual network basis. The command line option is in the format of "--domain

This will cause dnsmasq to register all DHCP leases that present a hostname into
DNS under this domain. It will also pass this domain name as a search domain to
DHCP clients.

This then means that systems who have their addresses assigned via DHCP are
reachable in DNS for the virtual network.

FYI, there is a patch for this upstream now. It's been given the thumbs up so will most likely be committed soon.

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2008-09-16 18:55:33 UTC
Actually, this is now upstream:


So i'll move to POST.

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2008-12-07 00:51:49 UTC
This is in release 0.4.6 and later, which is in rawhide, F9, and F10. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
