Adding a Static DNS Entry into the Ubiquiti UniFi Dream Machine Pro
Something I ran into today on my home network, with the Ubiquiti UniFi Dream Machine Pro, is that you can’t add a static DNS entry into the Dream Machine Pro, which totally stinks.. I had a VM that I setup which I needed to refer to by DNS name, but couldn’t.
It seems many others have been asking for this feature as well:
Thankfully a user on the above thread posted a possible workaround with a script calling the API: https://github.com/evaneaston/udm-host-records — I have since implemented this script on the Dream Machine Pro and it worked wonderfully!
I have been using these scripts, but find all entries are erased with any network change (FW Rules, VLANs, etc). Are you encountering this. I have created another simple script to re-add them all, but it would be nice to add them permanently
@TheRonniegade – I too have noticed that the entries are wiped out after some time too, I thought it was due to code upgrades or something. I have not investigated a resolution to that, although maybe the script author has posted a fix.
I have k8s cluster in my lab. I’d imagine using this but running it as a cron job every night would mitigate this issue. I’ll be implementing it later today
