Arrrg! I tried moving the txt record but no change. I can put the recs in any order I want as the script that generates my Bind Zones pulls them from SQL, so arranging the keys to write out TXT in any place within the zone is easy enough to do. But I didn't see a difference before. I'll relook at what I did. This should not be that difficult, online docs show text examples with no mention of where in the zone they need to be. I would ahve thought that it A) didn't matter, or B) an origin line prior to the TXT line, or B) a full domain name in the text-name field would be able to over ride the previous host name. IOW, host IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx domain. IN TXT "something" I would have though that a full origin name as the left value on the TXT line would override the previous host value. But that does not seem to be so. I still think I've done something wrong here. DAve -- Google finally, after 7 years, provided a logo for veterans. Thank you Google.
