Adding Unraid Mount Share via Tag to FSTAB

Create a share on the VM machine itself in Unraid.

Let’s assume your mount tag is “test”.

Make sure you create your mount folder within the VM. In our case its “/whatever”. Modify your /etc/fstab file like this to mount the share. Then reboot.

test        /whatever            9p         trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L,_netdev,rw 0 0

Pi-hole static DNS entry

This is more docker related but should be similar to just a plain jane install. You can add your static entries to the /etc/hosts file or you can add it the the dnsmasq.d configuration file.

Create a file under /etc/dnsmasq.d, something like myhosts.conf and add the following. Keep adding entries until your done.

host-record=hostname.com,192.168.1.1

Find your pi-hole dns configuration under /etc/dnsmasq.d. Open the file and add the following line to end of your the configuration file.

conf-file= /etc/dnsmasq.d/ myhosts .conf

Go back to the pi-hole GUI and restart the DNS under settings/system “restart DNS resolver”.
