OS FreeBSD 7.0Just got the idea to start a very simple local DNS server. For that I would like to use named.Some question I have regarding to this: Configuration files for named reside in /etc/namedb directoryAccording to the manual, I might use the command 'sh make-localhost' but this script isn't in my /etc/namedb directory:triton# cd /etc/namedb triton# ll drwxr-xr-x 2 bind wheel 512 Feb 24 18:49 dynamic drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 May 24 08:44 master -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 581 Feb 21 2007 named.conf -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 2967 Feb 24 18:53 named.root -rw------- 1 bind wheel 97 May 27 19:35 rndc.key drwxr-xr-x 2 bind wheel 512 Feb 24 18:49 slaveDid something go wrong with installing named () or do I have to do an additional make install?
Nope. BIND has been updated and things have changed but the handbook hasn't caught up yet. You no longer need to run 'make-localhost' but can just use the provided zonefiles for forward and reverse lookups thereof. The rest is pretty much the same though.
