Re: BIND entries

NSUPDATE is typically used to update dynamically assigned names and addresses. To update the permanent database you probably want to follow http://www.openvms.compaq.com/doc/83final/6526/6526pro_008.html#bind9_ascii

Re: BIND entries

> BIND service is already configured...

How, exactly?

Around here (antinode.info), the main
configuration file,
SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$BIND]TCPIP$BIND.CONF,
contains specifications like:

zone "ANTINODE.INFO" in {
type master;
file "ANTINODE_INFO.DB";
};

and

zone "0.0.10.IN-ADDR.ARPA" in {
type master;
file "0_0_10_IN-ADDR_ARPA.DB";
};

and the actual name-to-address and
address-to-name data (and SOA, and other
data) are maintained in those ".DB" files.
So, if I wish to add something, I edit those
files.

As usual, it might be interesting to know
which IP software you're using. Around here,

ALP $ tcpip show version

HP TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.4 - ECO 7

Thanks for your replies...

$tcpip show version

Compaq TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS Alpha Version V5.3 - ECO 1
on a Compaq AlphaServer ES45 Model 2BP running OpenVMS V7.3-1

The .conf files have entries :
zone "tcto.com" in {
type master;
file "AB_COM.DB";
allow-update { 192.168.25.4; 192.168.25.204; };
allow-transfer { LOCALHOST; 192.168.25.4; 192.168.25.19; };
};
the file AB_COM.DB gets generated every 1 hr. so manually adding the entries doesnot help.

Is the records in BIND server database is added using NSUPDATE ?

Thanks

Re: BIND entries

The TTL is set to 3600 sec,hence, it get refreshed every 1 hr

4975489 ; serial
3600 ; refresh (1 hour)
300 ; retry (5 minutes)
175000 ; expire (2 days 36 minutes 40 seconds)
43300 ; minimum (12 hours 1 minute 40 seconds)

From where? I assume that someone must have
the master files. Edit those?

Re: BIND entries

FOX2, let's start over...

$ TCPIP
TCPIP> SHOW NAME
TCPIP> SHOW HOST
TCPIP> EXIT

Look at the output from SHOW NAME and see what node is defined as the BIND/DNS source, if any. Check the SHOW HOST output. If you have any missing nodes, the system(s) listed in SHOW NAME should be the place your DNS Administrator needs to define the node you want to see. Your system may be the nameserver. If it is you should add nodes to your local host database using TCPIP SET HOST/ADDRESS=

Re: BIND entries

Yes..name server is already defined..
It is the same as the host server.

When I issue show host it lists 2 databases...1>LOCAL 2>BIND

I'm able to add to the local database confortably..but cannot do this in BIND database.

TCPIP> sh host

What is a "host server"?

> I have not tried nsupdate yet...

So far as I can tell, you haven't identified
the DNS server yet, and that's where I'd
expect to find the files which you need to
change.

> Server: 192.168.25.56 ABC

What _is_ at 192.168.25.56?

Re: BIND entries

192.168.25.56 is the BIND server address...
The server has multiple address
