Unbound wont start



  • If i enable "cache restoration support", unbound refuses to start. I'm using pf 2.0 amd64 built on Thu Mar 17 08:56:03 EDT 2011 with latest unbound: 1.4.8_131 as reported by packages-manager



  • What does /var/log/unbound.log say?



  • My other pfsense died, so here I am with a fresh install of 2.0 and a few toys..

    I have noticed this as well.  Only way I can get mine to start is save the unbound settings, it will then start. I also have Cache Restoration Support checked. ( I have not tried reboot with the restore turned off yet tho)

    I did not get the logs before restarting this time, the the logs appear to only cover information from when I saved the settings and it restarted.

  • Silly question - but after you install Unbound, it wont start automatically as you need to then configure it which also requires disabling the DNS Forwarder (as per post-installation notes). The unbound logs will then start to be populated once you have configured and clicked 'save'.

    Did you do this?
