DNS Resolver is not starting after pfSense upgrade to 2.3



  • Hello everyone,

    My pfsense firewall was initially at 2.2 which uses DNS forwarder to resolve DNS requests from clients of our local network.
    After upgrade, I switch to DNS Resolver and enabled it. However, it shows this error messages:

    • The generated config file cannot be parsed by unbound. Please correct the following errors:

    • [1462256303] unbound-checkconf[38210:0] error: local-data in redirect zone must reside at top of zone, not at firewall.umbansalan.lan A 192.168.16.1

    • [1462256303] unbound-checkconf[38210:0] fatal error: failed local-zone, local-data configuration

    DNS Resolver>General Settings can not be saved and the DNS Resolver service is not running.

    Any help is very much appreciated. TIA and more power!
