Is there no 'System DNS' setting available on NSG?

We need System DNS setting to be available in NSG.
In remote offices with IPSEC connection to Head Quarters, we want DNS queries for internal network (domain.local) to be forwarded to corporate DNS servers through IPSEC tunnel, and DNS queries for all other (public) addresses (*) to be forwarded to the ISP to which the remote office is connected. On the USG devices, we used to configure System DNS to get this functionality. How would we achieve the same using NSG ?

Using NSG, it seems like we have to forward all DNS requests to corporate DNS servers, and this makes internet browsing slow and dependent on having the IPSEC up and running at all times.

Kind regards

    Welcome to Nebula Forum. NSG is currently not supportive for System DNS setting, but we already received the same request from another post - Domain Zone Forwarder. As a result of this, we have incorporated this feature on our roadmap. If you like it, I would like to move your post to the idea section in order to notify other users about this has been requested. :)

    Hi @Nebula_James,
    Thanks for your quick reply. Sorry that I did not realize that @LarrY_FIN already suggested the same feature to be implemented. Please go ahead and move my post to the other section of this forum. BTW is it possible to see what is in the roadmap?

    Kind regards

    Unfortunately, we don't provide the roadmap for this information at the moment but will consider doing so soon.

    Hi @Erik and someone who need Domain Zone Forwarder,

    Domain Zone Forwarder is on our roadmap, and we plan to implement this feature in 1st half of 2018. :+1:
    Before it has been available on NCC, we could provide command line for you to setup on NSG. Please feel free to PM me for this request. =)
