Could you please describe your configuration and what you are trying to achieve?
I would like to see example zone file for BIND9 and description of desired
Maybe that I'm wrong, but AFAIK $ORIGIN is just shorthand for use *inside*
zone files. It has no effect outside zone parser:
IMHO it does not affect query processing in any way.
the below is the BIND Admin Reference Manual entry for the $ORIGIN
The $ORIGIN Directive
Syntax: $ORIGIN domain-name [comment]
$ORIGIN sets the domain name that will be appended to any unqualified
records. When a zone is first read in there is an implicit $ORIGIN
<zone_name>. (followed by trailing dot). The current $ORIGIN is appended
to the domain specified in the $ORIGIN argument if it is not absolute.
WWW CNAME MAIN-SERVER
is equivalent to
WWW.EXAMPLE.COM. CNAME MAIN-SERVER.EXAMPLE.COM.
would a Request For Enhancement be needed or should a bug be filed for this
Please let us clarify what you are trying to achieve, then we can open RFE.
Have a nice day!
