Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
DynDB API from the upstream version 9.11.0 of BIND added to Red Hat Enterprise Linux This update backports the API for the *dyndb* system plug-in, which was introduced in the _bind_ package version 9.11.0 in upstream. As a result, the *bind-dyndb-ldap* plug-in in Red Hat Enterprise Linux now uses the new API. The downstream feature *dynamic_db*, which was used in previous releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, is no longer supported. Because the upstream *dyndb* uses a different configuration syntax than the downstream *dynamic_db*, the syntax also changes with this update. However, you do not need to make any manual configuration changes.

Description Petr Vobornik 2016-11-10 14:34:27 UTC
Bind 9.11.O introduced dyndb API https://lists.isc.org/pipermail/bind-announce/2016-October/001007.html

New versions of bind-dyndb-ldap(used by IdM) in current Fedoras use this API. 

This is a request to backport this API support to RHEL so that bind-dyndb-ldap in RHEL can use it. It will then allow rebase of bind-dyndb-ldap and therefore lower maintance cost - possibility of backporting patches without reimplementing them in a future.

Comment 1 Tomáš Hozza 2016-11-10 16:54:54 UTC
We will replace the existing downstream patch adding DynDB API with the upstream one.
