Overriding some DNS entries for internal networks

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/01/27

Based on [Wayback] domain name system – Overriding some DNS entries in BIND for internal networks – Server Fault and some further reading, there seem to be two ways used in these scenarios:

I wonder how that would interact best with Pi-Hole based solutions. Would it be best to have your local network use the Pi-Hole server, then have the Pi-Hole server obtain the DNS information it cannot resolve through one of the above solutions? Or would other solutions work better?

So here are a few links:

Pi-Hole seems not interested in RPZ: [Wayback] Implement Response Zone Policies (NXDOMAIN) for end-user performance increase – Feature Requests / Implemented – Pi-hole Userspace

Pi-Hole default blacklist is mentioned in [Wayback/] pi-hole/ at master · pi-hole/pi-hole (look for adlistFile which defaults to [Wayback/] StevenBlack/hosts: 🔒 Consolidating and extending hosts files from several well-curated sources. Optionally pick extensions for porn, social media, and other categories.).

Since I need this for ESXi: [Wayback/] Let’s Encrypt SSL for ESXi
