Ubuntu bind slave not updating

These are now limited to our own internal network, LAN.

The forwarders section, where your DNS server asks to lookup IP address for hosts it does not know. I’m using 10.1.200.1 which in the one on my lab-router.

Not sure why the guys in China are so interested in hacking my servers.

You can now use the name internals in the three sections for allow-query, allow-recursion and allow-transfer.

If you are a home user and your network has grown such that you are tired of using all static IP addresses and having to configure the /etc/hosts files by hand, then use the great tool dnsmasq. Dnsmasq is so much simpler to setup and maintain than bind9.

If you are determined to use bind9 and isc-dhcp server then carry on. I start off with a minimal Ubuntu desktop install with MATE.

Also add the reverse lookup record to /var/lib/bind/rev.zone, but this time before the “PTR I use the hostname lab-addc1 as the SAMBA AD DC server name.
