Secondary DNS Master

Postby user00265 » Wed Apr 28, 2010 9:03 pm

The master DNS server field accepts hostnames (though not recommended), IPv4 and IPv6 addresses... However, what of a host that is dual-stacked and has one network go down, yet still be available on the other? What if I update a zone and it pushes, just to have it refuse the notify because the IP is not configured?

This has happened to me a few times, so I'm starting to see why this would be a good idea.

Something like...

Master: <IPv4 Address> [ ] IPv6? <- checkbox, if enabled, then under it:
Master (IPv6): <IPv6 Address>

I can probably update the BIND config generator to insert an AAAA record if it's present on the same hostname lookup. I'll take a look at the code.

I misspoke; I can very easily add a second master field that will accept an IP address (v4 or v6). I'll try to have it done this week.

No rush, but it is a good thing to have.

Support for defining a second master for a secondary DNS zone has been added.
