Hi everybody,

I am attempting to configure a BIND 9 name server that will be authoritative for certain domains which will listen exclusively on IPv6.

This same box will also be a caching server for a handful of networks (IPv6 and IPv4).

The way I have it set up is that the authoritative and caching services each run a single instance of BIND on it's own IP address, with both instances each doing exactly what they are supposed to do.

However, how can I make the FreeBSD (7.0) startup scripts load both instances of BIND, each with it's own configuration?

I've read through the Administrators handbook for BIND and numerous newsgroup postings about 'views', but I don't think this is what I want. It seems 'views' are more for split-DNS, segregating internal access and external access to the same service. That is not what I am after.

Any pointers much appreciated.

I did something very similar.  Run one of the bind instances in a jail --
especially with a little firewall rdr rules and similar trickery to redirect
traffic into the appropriate instance (which gets you past the lack of IPv6
support in jail(8)). Works beautifully.
