Installing Bind9


I am new to RedHat Linux. I installed redhat linux server 5.4 on our new server. I need to know the command to install Bind9 and also the steps to configure DNS. I would appreciate any help you could give. Thank you.

I have installed bind with the following command. yum -y install bind does this command install everything that is needed to setup DNS? Also, this doesn't setup a Bind directory? I have used Ubuntu before and setup DNS on that machine. RedHat is a lot different. Does the installation create a named file? Like I said I am new to RedHat. Just looking for some guidance. Thank you.

You have not said which type of DNS nameserver you want to configure i.e. master, slave, caching, forwarding or some combination of these.

Assuming you want to setup a caching nameserver, you need the following packages - bind, bind-chroot, bind-utils and caching-nameserver. If you want a GUI configuration tool, then also install system-config-bind.

I tried this under centos 5.4 and it says no package available. Nevermind, when Selinux is off, I am able to install it.

What type of nameserver do I need if I want to redirect all my users who logged onto this terminal server and hit the URL test.net or myapplication.net (instead of going to a live site that we host on different server) I want it to go to our test web server. This will be sort of my bogus dns. Sorry, I tried changing the host file, but some http pages don't work since it has so many embedded links, etc. I figure I tried the bogus dns.

I am using system-config-bind (the GUI)and exit it without making any changes. I noticed it created a file namaed.conf var/named/chroot. Any hints what I need to modify.
Thanks,
john
