Addin default search domain - Bionic

Hi guys,

I have asked this question on the Juju Discourse forum but realized that netplan might be controlled from MAAS initally and only copied/modified by Juju.

I am having issues deploying a Openstack Bionic-Rocky cloud. All the nodes are complaining about not able to resolve the hostnames of its peers.

So i thought i could work around this by pushing a juju-run command with some sed magic. But that didn’t work so great.

My question is if there is a way to instruct MAAS to deploy the machine with a default search the same way you provide the default nameserver today?

Best regards

Hi there,

It is not yet possible to overwrite the search domain. See

That said, if you are using LXD containers, these should be getting the config from MAAS< which should actually include the DNS config.

Can you please expand on how this is all configured? Are the LXD containers in a subnet that MAAS knows about? Have you investigated DNS issues in general?


So if i understand correctly the LXD containers rely on the host to have a dns-search, and the hosts rely on the MAAS controller.
I think i removed the search setting in netplan on my Maas by accident. I will redeploy my cluster with these changes to see if works better.

Thank you for clarifying :slight_smile:
