beastie.frontfree.net is now running bind 9.3
I finally got beastie.frontfree.net running bind 9.3 (as FreeBSD 5.3-BETA7 does, which is chroot’ed by default). While this is accomplished primarily with help of src/UPDATING’s instructions and Doug Barton’s excellent mergemaster(8). BIND stands for “Berkeley Internet Name Daemon” and is the de-facto standard of DNS implementation.
I have first run into problem with bind9. It is configured to listen 127.0.0.1 by default and I blindly adopted this. The result is that no slave servers get updates from it. With a change this goes well.
The directory scheme has been changed, too. It’s more clean now.
