Description Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-26 18:42:42 EST
Missing at least
# config: /etc/named.conf
# processname: named
Alternatively, it is possible to use linuxconf explicitly
in a probe command to dynamically parse /etc/named.conf
and look at all the configuration files and see if any
of them need to be changed.

We should probably wait for linuxconf 1.14r1.2 and
make bind conflict with linuxconf > 1.14r1.2 (since
the probing is for linuxconf to call, if linuxconf
is not installed, the probing isn't much of an issue).
Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-03-26 18:46:59 EST
I see absolutely no reason to link in any way bind with linuxconf via
a dependency/conflct chain.

I will fix bind to provide that probing information.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-26 19:19:59 EST
OK, we have discussed this and concluded that bind by definition
should know what to do about reloading, and it provides the command
"ndc reload" to do intelligent reloading.  If bind changes, bind
will keep up with its own changes faster than linuxconf can, just
by definition.

bind does not, however, provide a command to report on its status,
which means that to precisely follow probe semantics we would need
to always report "reload".

We are therefore bending the semantics of the probe statement to
always do an ndc reload and never report that anything needs to
be done, except if named needs to be started, in which case we
will report start.  This way, if someone stops named, runs linuxconf
to change named configuration, and then exits linuxconf, he will
be asked if he wants to start named.  Otherwise, named will silently
