Live Patches Disabled AdGuard?

Post by Rhizome »

Adguard Home stopped blocking ads after installation of several live patches about a week ago. A few days ago I noticed that DNS queries were half of the normal. Today after checking the Dashboard, there are zero DNS enquiries, Clients, etc (see screenshot.)

What's the best way to get AdGuard working again? I don't recall the patch names, just the numbers (1-4) so I'm guessing I need to walk through the entire configuration?

Our live patches don't have any influence in a running application. We correct simple code blocks on our own DietPi scripts.

If AGH is not working, it's an issue on AGH themselves. As AGH is a single executable, you could simply reinstall it. If there are no queries, your clients most probably don't use AGH anymore. Have a look to your clients what DNS Server they are using.

Somehow the devices are using the 9.9.9.9 DNS settings of the router.
If I reinstall, do I need to backup all my AGH settings for reuse?

Why do you like to reinstall? You need to check where your systems get these data from? Do you have a 2nd DHCP server active? Like the router? Or are you distributing a primary and a secondary DNS via your DHCP server settings?

Except for my android phone, which is using the DNS server 8.8.8.8, all other device servers are 9.9.9.9 /149.112.112.112 which is the static primary/ secondary DNS servers on my modem/router. I suspect that rebooting my router caused things to default back to the router, but how do I get AGH functioning again?

Check if your router has activated the DHCP server. If yes, disable it and activate the one on AGH.

Router DHCP server was/ is already disabled. AGH DHCP server was/is enabled. I then tried disabling and re-enabling it. Got the msg "AGH could not determine if there is another active DHCP server on the network." The AGH server is running.

If you have a Windows box, you could run ipconfig -all to check what the DHCP server is who has assigned IP address to your client.

And the assignment DNS server is 9.9.9.9 or does it probably assign 2 DNS server maybe?
