On the system that is the slave delete all the slaved files (as
described as slave in /etc/named.conf), then kill -HUP the in.named
daemon on that system. This should cause a zone transfer to begin from
the master to the slave and which should update the local DNS tables. If
it doesn't (ps -ef |grep named, look for named-xfer), more info is
needed: /etc/named.conf from both systems, contents of named tables
directory, ownership/permissions of all the related files.
If you are going to be working with BIND for very long, get Paul Albitz
and Cricket Liu's fine O'Reilley DNS and BIND book (has a cricket on the
cover) and read through the salient sections on setting up DNS. There is
also a useful web site, www.domtools.com, where you can explore your own
DNS environment from an external viewpoint (assuming it is visible to
the Internet). Also get to know nslookup and get a copy of dig - both
are essential tools for debugging DNS.
