Fixed In Version: bind-dyndb-ldap-2.3-7.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The documentation for bind-dyndb-ldap-2.3 located in the /usr/share/doc/bind-dyndb-ldap-2.3/README file incorrectly stated that the "idnsAllowTransfer" and "idnsAllowQuery" LDAP attributes are multi-valued. Consequently, users were not able to configure DNS zone transfer and query acess control lists according to the documentation. The documentation has been fixed to explain the correct attribute syntax.

Here is the delta:
quote from /usr/share/doc/bind-dyndb-ldap-2.3/README:

        This attribute can be set multiple times and are merged together to the one ACL.

                idnsAllowQuery: ::1

        In the example above clients with and ::1 IP addresses and
        clients from the network are allowed to obtain records
        from the zone.

	value "dyn_update" from plugin configuration will be used.

* idnsAllowQuery
	Specifies BIND9 zone ACL element as one string.

	Example 1:      idnsAllowQuery:;
	In the first example above, only the client with IP address
	is allowed to query records from the zone.

	Example 2:      idnsAllowQuery: !;;
	In the second example, queries from client are refused
	but queries from all other clients in the network
	are allowed.

	You can specify IPv4/IPv6 address, IPv4/IPv6 network address in CIDR
	format, and "any" or "none" keywords. The "!" prefix (for example
	! means negation of the ACL element.

	If not set, then zone inherits global allow-query from named.conf.
