My domain is: *.sma.com
I ran this command: ./certbot-auth
It produced this output: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for twc.sma.com
My operating system is (include version): opensuse 42.1
My web server is (include version): apache 2.4
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No
We use the domain “sma.com” for our local network. The domain unfortunately is also registered and is in use on the Internet; the domain has passed through 4 or 5 owners since we established our local network in 1998. Generally this is not an issue as our local DNS server knows what’s what.
cert-bot-auth, OTOH, apparently uses a non-local DNS server to resolve the domain names of interest, which results in the type error indicated above.
Is there a way to tell certbot-auth to use the local DNS server rather than its default one?
