Can anyone confirm if the BIND server that comes preinstalled and running with PVE 2 (on OVH servers at least) can be safely disabled and removed.
I use to run a small DNSMASQ instance on the host merely to act as a DNS cache and central point for all VMs on that host and BIND just seems to be too much for that.
Thanks.

Hi,
on a normal pve-installation you have only
Code:
ii  bind9-host                      1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze8      Version of 'host' bundled with BIND 9.X
ii  libbind9-60                     1:9.7.3.dfsg-1~squeeze8      BIND9 Shared Library used by BIND

Our system included after install:

bind9 install
bind9-host install
bind9utils install
libbind9-60 install
I assume that means I can uninstall bind9 (server)

But what is the easiest to allow host to "forward" DNS requests? Does not PVE host include that?
I mean, I want all VMs and containers resolving to the hotst IP address so I can cache them and have static entries from there.

Thanks.
