RESOLVCONF.CONF(5)          System Manager's Manual         RESOLVCONF.CONF(5)

NAME
     resolvconf.conf -- resolvconf configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     resolvconf.conf is the configuration file for resolvconf(8).  The
     resolvconf.conf file is a shell script that is sourced by resolvconf(8),
     meaning that resolvconf.conf must contain valid shell commands.  Listed
     below are the standard resolvconf.conf variables that may be set.  If the
     values contain white space for special shell characters, ensure they are
     quoted and escaped correctly.

     After updating this file, you may wish to run resolvconf -u to apply the
     new configuration.

RESOLVCONF OPTIONS
     resolvconf
             Set to NO to disable resolvconf from running any subscribers.
             Defaults to YES.

     interface_order
             These interfaces will always be processed first.  If unset,
             defaults to the following:-
                   lo lo[0-9]*

     dynamic_order
             These interfaces will be processed next, unless they have a met-
             ric.  If unset, defaults to the following:-
                   tap[0-9]* tun[0-9]* vpn vpn[0-9]* ppp[0-9]* ippp[0-9]*

     local_nameservers
             If unset, defaults to the following:-
                   127.* 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255 ::1

     search_domains
             Prepend search domains to the dynamically generated list.

     search_domains_append
             Append search domains to the dynamically generated list.

     domain_blacklist
             A list of domains to be removed from consideration.  To remove a
             domain, you can use foo.*  To remove a sub domain, you can use
             *.bar

     name_servers
             Prepend name servers to the dynamically generated list.  You
             should set this to 127.0.0.1 if you use a local name server other
             than libc.

     name_servers_append
             Append name servers to the dynamically generated list.

     name_server_blacklist
             A list of name servers to be removed from consideration.  The
             default is 0.0.0.0 as some faulty routers send it via DHCP.  To
             remove a block, you can use 192.168.*

     private_interfaces
             These interfaces name servers will only be queried for the
             domains listed in their resolv.conf.  Useful for VPN domains.
             This is equivalent to the resolvconf -p option.

     state_dir
             Override the default state directory of /var/run/resolvconf.
             This should not be changed once resolvconf is in use unless the
             old directory is copied to the new one.

LIBC OPTIONS
     The following variables affect resolv.conf(5) directly:-

     resolv_conf
             Defaults to /etc/resolv.conf if not set.

     resolv_conf_options
             A list of libc resolver options, as specified in resolv.conf(5).

     resolv_conf_passthrough
             When set to YES the latest resolv.conf is written to resolv_conf
             without any alteration.  When set to /dev/null or NULL,
             resolv_conf_local_only is defaulted to NO, local_nameservers is
             unset unless overriden and only the information set in
             resolvconf.conf is written to resolv_conf.

     resolv_conf_sortlist
             A libc resolver sortlist, as specified in resolv.conf(5).

     resolv_conf_local_only
             If a local name server is configured then the default is just to
             specify that and ignore all other entries as they will be config-
             ured for the local name server.  Set this to NO to also list non-
             local nameservers.  This will give you working DNS even if the
             local nameserver stops functioning at the expense of duplicated
             server queries.

SUBSCRIBER OPTIONS
     openresolv ships with subscribers for the name servers dnsmasq(8),
     named(8), pdnsd(8) and unbound(8).  Each subscriber can create configura-
     tion files which should be included in in the subscribers main configura-
     tion file.

     To disable a subscriber, simply set it's name to NO.  For example, to
     disable the libc subscriber you would set:
           libc=NO

     dnsmasq_conf
             This file tells dnsmasq which name servers to use for specific
             domains.

     dnsmasq_resolv
             This file tells dnsmasq which name servers to use for global
             lookups.

             Example resolvconf.conf for dnsmasq:
                   name_servers=127.0.0.1
                   dnsmasq_conf=/etc/dnsmasq-conf.conf
                   dnsmasq_resolv=/etc/dnsmasq-resolv.conf

             Example dnsmasq.conf:
                   listen-address=127.0.0.1
                   # If dnsmasq is compiled for DBus then we can take
                   # advantage of not having to restart dnsmasq.
                   enable-dbus
                   conf-file=/etc/dnsmasq-conf.conf
                   resolv-file=/etc/dnsmasq-resolv.conf

     named_options
             Include this file in the named options block.  This file tells
             named which name servers to use for global lookups.

     named_zones
             Include this file in the named global scope, after the options
             block.  This file tells named which name servers to use for spe-
             cific domains.

             Example resolvconf.conf for named:
                   name_servers=127.0.0.1
                   named_options=/etc/named-options.conf
                   named_zones=/etc/named-zones.conf

             Example named.conf:
                   options {
                        listen-on { 127.0.0.1; };
                        include /etc/named-options.conf;
                   };
                   include /etc/named-zones.conf;

     pdnsd_conf
             This is the main pdnsd configuration file which we modify to add
             our forward domains to.  If this variable is not set then we rely
             on the pdnsd configuration file setup to read pdnsd_resolv as
             documented below.

     pdnsd_resolv
             This file tells pdnsd about global name servers.  If this vari-
             able is not set then it's written to pdnsd_conf.

             Example resolvconf.conf for pdnsd:
                   name_servers=127.0.0.1
                   pdnsd_conf=/etc/pdnsd.conf
                   # pdnsd_resolv=/etc/pdnsd-resolv.conf

             Example pdnsd.conf:
                   global {
                        server_ip = 127.0.0.1;
                        status_ctl = on;
                   }
                   server {
                        # A server definition is required, even if emtpy.
                        label="empty";
                        proxy_only=on;
                        # file="/etc/pdnsd-resolv.conf";
                   }

     unbound_conf
             This file tells unbound about specific and global name servers.

     unbound_insecure
             When set to YES, unbound marks the domains as insecure, thus
             ignoring DNSSEC.

             Example resolvconf.conf for unbound:
                   name_servers=127.0.0.1
                   unbound_conf=/etc/unbound-resolvconf.conf

             Example unbound.conf:
                   include: /etc/unbound-resolvconf.conf

SUBSCRIBER INTEGRATION
     Not all distributions store the files the subscribers need in the same
     locations.  For example, named service scripts have been called named,
     bind and rc.bind and they could be located in a directory called
     /etc/rc.d, /etc/init.d or similar.  Each subscriber attempts to automati-
     cally configure itself, but not every distribution has been catered for.
     Also, users could equally want to use a different version from the one
     installed by default, such as bind8 and bind9.  To accomodate this, the
     subscribers have these files in configurable variables, documented below.

     dnsmasq_service
             Location of the dnsmasq service.

     dnsmasq_restart
             Command to restart the dnsmasq service.

     dnsmasq_pid
             Location of the dnsmasq pidfile.

     libc_service
             Location of the libc service.

     libc_restart
             Command to restart the libc service.

     named_service
             Location of the named service.

     named_restart
             Command to restart the named service.

     pdnsd_restart
             Command to restart the pdnsd service.

     unbound_service
             Location of the unbound service.

     unbound_restart
             Command to restart the unbound service.

     unbound_pid
             Location of the unbound pidfile.

BUGS
     Each distribution is a special snowflake and likes to name the same thing
     differently, namely the named service script.
