Description of Problem:

The man page is there, but the executable is missing:

# rpm -p bind-utils-9.2.1-0.70.i386.rpm -ql | grep nsupdate


Note that nsupdate was included in the bind-utils package that shipped with 7.1:

# rpm -p bind-utils-9.1.0-10.i386.rpm -ql | grep nsupdate



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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Freshen bind-utils to version 9.2.1-0.70.

2. Attempt to run /usr/bin/nsupdate

Actual Results:

bash: /usr/bin/nsupdate: No such file or directory

Expected Results:

nsupdate output.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-06-10 08:15:13 EDT
The binary has moved to the bind package because some people running 
workstations without any need to control a DNS server complained about the 
"useless" tool in bind-utils. 
The fact that the man page is still in bind-utils is a bug.
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2002-06-11 10:29:27 EDT
Why shall I install the server package to get 'nsupdate'? It is completely
independent of the server; some systems broke here on the last bind-errate
because 'nsupdate' was used but only bind-utils installed.

IMO bind-utils was the perfect place for this tool, but to satisfy the people
named by you, please add a new package 'bind-nsupdate' where nsupdate is within!

Let people complain about a few kb more in bind-utils. It's better than 
breaking scripts. nsupdate and the man page are now back in bind-utils
