Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84932
BIND - Caching Nameserver RFC1912 Section 4.1
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:33 EDT
Description of problem:
RFC1912, section 4.1 lists a set of zones that should be included in all name
servers. It lists:
primary localhost localhost
primary 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa 127.0
primary 255.in-addr.arpa 255
primary 0.in-addr.arpa 0
The caching-nameserver package includes the first two of these, but not the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): N/A
This is a configuration error, not a software bug.
Given that new installations are set to "localhost.localdomain," the informal
TLD "localdomain" should be added to the list of authoritative domains that is
included in the default BIND configuration on Red Hat Linux.
This is now fixed (caching-nameserver-7.3-3).
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
