DNS in Alpine containers

Immich makes use of Alpine container images. These can encounter a DNS resolution bug on Kubernetes clusters if the host nodes have a search domain set, like:

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
search home.lan

When you encounter this bug, it will cause the immich-microservices to crash on startup because it cannot download the geocoder data. This can be solved in one of two ways: Either reconfigure your nodes to remove the searchdomain from resolv.conf, or set the DISABLE_REVERSE_GEOCODING environment variable for Immich to true to disable the geocoder.
