DNS Files

Post by Chris Shmid » Sat, 14 Oct 1995 04:00:00


I'm having a bit of trouble with DNS in general. Everything is working
almost fine but once in while I get a glitch with services not found
and things like that.

Would some of you kindly mail me your DNS files, specifically the two
files where you make DNS changes? I just want to make sure that
everything is set up properly.

Thanks very much.

1. What are these DNS files for?

I'm using bind 9.2.1, and have found hundreds of files with
different extensions in /var/named which look like:

sim:/var/named> ls -l *.a*|head
-rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              0 Feb 11 05:59  db.
-rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              0 Feb 13 19:54  db.
-rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              0 Jan  3 05:21   db.
-rw-r--r--   1 root       sys              0 Dec 31 17:57  db.

Why are these files being created?  What are they for?
