Ooghf. You are right. The OP simply said "a config file", and we've all assumed. Hopefully Lewis knows / understand that we are just squabbling amongst ourselves because we've know each other for a long time and this is in good humor. Assuming that it *is* an SOA (which is a reasonable assumption at this point :0) ) yes, that is 15 seconds, and is almost definitely not what you want. RIPE has a suggestion ( https://www.ripe.net/publications/docs/ripe-203 ), SWITCH.CH has some others (https://securityblog.switch.ch/2014/02/06/zone-file-recommendations/) , Peter Koch (related to the RIPE page :-)) had others: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-koch-dns-soa-values-01 The actual values used are open to tuning, but in the original posting, you, that was 15 seconds, and was *probably* a typo for 15 minutes. I personally always use seconds in my zonefiles, and avoid the new fangled hours / weeks / syntax.

This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair of pants. ---maf _______________________________________________ Please visit https://lists.isc.org/mailman/listinfo/bind-users to unsubscribe from this list bind-users mailing list email@example.com https://lists.isc.org/mailman/listinfo/bind-users
