[Not Serious] "Combining" DNS zones?
First off, I'm asking mostly out of laziness. I fully anticipate reactions along the lines of "Not only no, but H*ll No!"
For background and context, I'm actually doing infrastructure for a small set of dev and test subdomains and subnets. I ~absolutely~ would not be doing this for a production network!
But, this being dev and test, projects come and go, hosts get swapped around, different PMs want different naming conventions, and I'm lazy enough to wonder if I can keep my subdomains in a single zone file. Something like this:
Sadly, my job is not to play, but to provide the playground for the other girls and boys. How about you all? Anyone tried it? ;D
PS. On further thought: I wouldn't actually do this because it would confuse the daylights out of whoever had to take over for me if I got hit by a bus. Still fun to wonder about, though...
Actually we do something similar for many of our domains in Production.
We create a zone file for aliases e.g. something like:
Contents would be something like:
We actually have hundreds of zones aliased this way.
Also you'll note I use the same name servers and mail servers in the aliases file since we only have name server and mail server in our primary domain (described in a separate zone file). You could make those references relative as well I believe if you had access to each of those other domains to the IPs of the DNS and mail servers - we didn't see a need to do that here.
