CoreDNS Setup Or Plugin

Does anyone have a working setup with CoreDNS?


I know CoreDNS isn't used in homes...normally. But I am a homelabber and have multiple kubernetes clusters along with a VyOS router running CoreDNS as my main DNS server for my home network. 

Ideally, a CoreDNS plugin for NextDNS would be amazing, especially if it can populate hostnames!  But just a simple setup with their 

forward .

plugin would suffice too.

  • Conditional configuration is probably a better solution than forwarding

    This, unfortunately, will not survive VyOS upgrades unless I write custom scripts to re-install after an upgrade. 


    I was able to get the forward plugin to work with CoreDNS.
