I’m currently doing some testing to see if Nethserver fits my needs and so far it seems to be doing the job pretty well.
I’m currently trying to get DNS up and running and noticed that the table in the DNS-Hosts page doesn’t show all entries from the hosts file, it might be a feature but in my opinion it’s a bug.
My hosts file contains the following sections, created by Nethserver:
- 10localhost (localhost record)
- 20hostname (Nethserver host record)
- 30hosts_remote (manual table records via webgui)
- 40hosts_local (automatic records via DHCP IP reservations)
The Hosts table on the webgui only shows the 30hosts_remote section, giving no indication that the host computer already has a record in the DNS system and the automatic records are also not showing, giving no indication that a DNS record is created automatically when making a DHCP IP reservation.
