Yes, of course.

It looks like unbound acted as if it was not configured with a trust
anchor, it did not try to prime its trust anchor, for example.

If you start unbound with verbosity 4 (-vvvv) it prints the trust
anchors and root hints as it is starting.

You can also examine what unbound thinks is configured with
unbound-checkconf -o auto-trust-anchor-file
and unbound-control get_option auto-trust-anchor-file

(or, dlv-anchor-file, or trust-anchor-file, or trust-anchor).

Yeah, maybe it you killed it before the TLS init succeeded.

Weird, it does not act like it has one.  I do see it go into the
validator, but then does not act like there is a root key.  Or as if you
had domain-insecure: configured.

Sorry about that :-)

unlikely to be there, it logs with 'unbound:' all the time.  But thanks
for looking.
