After performing the bind upgrade from 8.2.2 to 8.3.1-1 new dns records do
not take / propagate and some older dns records vanish although
information still exists in named.conf and db.foo.com text file. However,
after going back to pervious version of bind all reappears and will
disappear again once the upgrade is reinstated.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.downloading RPMs for upgrading Bind for i386 (bind-8.2.3-1.i386.rpm,
devel, and utils)
2.installing RPMs using "rpm -Fvh bind*" while logged in as root user.
3.adding / altering db.foo.com and adding any additional records ("A", MX,
CNAME, etc.), verifying pointer from /etc/named.conf points back to
4.issuing reload on named process via "/etc/init.d/named reload" command
5.performing nslookup on new record and getting back "Non-existent
Actual Results: after performing above steps new named record(s) are not
added to the dns database (for lack of better description) and fails upon
performing an nslookup. In addition, any new domain names added fail to be

broadcast to other name (DNS) servers. in addition, one domain who's

the .com suffix.
all service patch advisories up to this release date (1-29-01) have been
implimented on this server. rpm's upgrading bind from 8.2.2 to 8.2.3-1
were done so using "rpm -Fvh bind*" with no other actions or tasks
completed during installation. Upon going back to 8.2.2 from 8.2.3 all new
records propagate and are varified via performing an nslookup.
