Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am responsible for 2 nameservers... both are masters and authoritative for 400+ domains. They are sync'ed by rsync, so all changes are made to just one server. The load is increasing and I want to add a third server outside of the normal network, but set it up as a slave, rather than have 3 masters. Is it possible to configure the slave to transfer *all* zones from one of the masters? If so, how? I don't want to have to add each entry and define the 'master' in named.conf. I just want to start up BIND on the slave, and initially transfer all zones from one of the masters I define, then get updates as notifies are sent. This way when new zones are added on the master, a notify will be sent to the slave telling it about the new zone (plus any other changed zones) which will then retrieve the updates.
I am running a mix of BIND 8 and 9, btw.
(I've read up on how to set up slaves, etc. I think I have it all figured out. In fact, I have it working for individual zones. I just can't seem to figure out how to transfer all the zones from the master.
