Description of problem:
redhat-config-bind doesn't increment the zone serial number when data has been changed

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start redhat-config-bind
2. add or delete a record in a zone
3. Choose File->Apply

Actual Results:  The zone has the same serial number as before

Expected Results:  The serial number should be incremented

Additional info:

This may be more of a user-interface issue, but the way the GUI is laid out, in order to change the serial number one has to select the zone, hit edit, and then hit the set button to change the S/N (which is the only field there which is not directly editable). The layout suggests that the Serial Number should not often be edited directly, which suggests to me that File->Apply should increment it if the user hasn't edited it (after all, if you have secondaries, applying the changes must include propagation, which won't happen for quite a long time if the S/N hasn't changed)

If it is intended that the user must change the S/N themselves every time it needs doing, perhaps the UI should make it more prominently editable (and provide a warning when applying changes if it hasn't been done, maybe).

Fixed in redhat-config-bind-1.9.0-2

Will be in rawhide shortly
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2002-10-09 10:02:46 EDT
The number should now be incremented automatically
