Description Lee Whatley 2004-10-04 13:48:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
This is strictly a feature request.  The version of BIND that ships
with RHEL 3 (bind-9.2.4-EL3_10) does not support a dual-stack
IPv4/IPv6 environment.  ISC addressed this issue with the release of
BIND 9.3.0.  Many organizations that are planning to migrate to IPv6
first implement a dual-stack environment in order to ease the
transition and elimination of legacy IPv4-only applications and
services.  It is currently impossible to implement a DNS server using
the Redhat supplied BIND rpm's in a dual-stack environment.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  N/A

Expected Results:  N/A

Additional info:

FWIW, it seems that bind-9.2.4-EL3_10 works fine in an IPv4 only or
IPv6 only environment.  The only problem is with network topologies
that incorporate a dual protocol stack.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2004-10-04 14:05:23 UTC
 bind-9.3.0 should be in the next RHEL-4.0 release 
 (or rather, the Release Candidate #1 that will be
 released in December). bind-9.3.0's release last
 week did not give us sufficient time for testing
 to include it in the current RHEL-4. 
 Meanwhile, you can download it from :
 and build it with:
 $ rpmbuild --rebuild bind-9.3.0-1_beta.src.rpm
 Then install the RPMs that will be in 
 /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/bind* .
