Dunno where to start with this, it's just hapend after i update, my server keep spaming my pihole with request almost 1k queries with "banfield.local"
this cause my pihole to crash with high load.

I only have 1 VM with homeassistant and 2 CT, 1 with debian with samba share and 1 with portainer and some docker containers.

here its a picture of pihole with this domain, if i block banfield.local

Or more precisely, which machine has the IP
yeah it's keep happening if i turn off all the VM and containers

that my proxmox hosts
Maybe you have a storage configured that connects to banfield.local? Proxmox will lookup the name of remote storage often (but I would not expect that often). Can you share the /etc/pve/storage.cfg file? Do you know of banfield.local? Is it a system on your local network? Can you share the /etc/hosts file?
