[Pdns-users] Recursor to Respond Authoritatively for all Queries

Hi All,

Appreciate if you can provide me with some insights on how to get this to work.

I am currently using PDNS 4.1.X branch servers and have configure the auth server + recursor according to this setup under 1st scenario:


The issue I currently have is that when I test the records via intodns.com or some other DNS check servers they report back saying lame servers.

Under recursor.conf, I have the following two lines basically forwarding all queries to the authoritative server.

Is there a way to configure the recursor to answer authoritatively for all queries? Say for example via Lua script with setAA() function perhaps?

Kind Regards,
Asanka Gunasekara
