I am running F-secure Namesurfer which dynamical updates my DNSs. When Namesurfer updates a zone, it sends a notification to both of my NSs, and then, they update their zones, but at the same time, each of the NSs sends a notification to every authoritative NS defined in their zones. So they will also send a notification to each other. Is it possible to stop them from sending the notification to one another but still send it to all the other authoritative NS defined in their zones?
Are you using the BIND 8 notify feature? Basically I'm using Namesurfer to update (2)primary NSs which in-turn Notify their slaves, but the (2) primary's are updating each other also... this is what I would like to stop without effecting any other functionality.
Can you explain what needs to be removed/added to the named.conf to remove the NSs from each others "notify process"?
alright, well you can type man named.conf, read up on the sections regarding notify and/or the Access section ( mainly allow-transfer ). Its not hard to setup correctly, but understanding the boring man file is.
If you get ahold of the named.conf sections, post up a jpg of the way its supposed to handle updates ( like a chart of each ns ), and I'll set the named.conf up correctly.
