I’ve been waiting for Bind10 to come to Fedora for a long time. I dunno if it’s better or worse; I just like new stuff 😉
That said, I totally expect it to be better. It has some neat features and the idea of a modular app seems great. (huh? somebody hurd something?)
Ok, now, this is how we setup a resolver. If you don’t know what a resolver is, please, don’t play with Bind10 just yet… oh, and look for the term in Wikipedia.
So, in Fedora 19, just:
# get the software yum -y install bind10-dns # re-write the cert file and the key cd /etc/bind10 rm -f ./* b10-certgen -w # generate a user for your personal use # btw, the user and password are case sensitive; obvious but must be mentioned. b10-cmdctl-usermgr # start it systemctl start bind10 # make sure it's running systemctl status bind10 # now, enter the dragon! # sometimes, it asks for the User/Password; sometimes it doesn't... who knows bindctl # configure the dragon! (add the resolver) config add Init/components b10-resolver config set Init/components/b10-resolver/special resolver config set Init/components/b10-resolver/kind needed config set Init/components/b10-resolver/priority 10 config commit quit # try it out dig @localhost woralelandia.com
So, basically, we have a new bind10 resolver! Yeah! Do you feel the power?!
Anyway, I got tons to learn… Maybe I’ll stop by the docs now and then. 😉
