Unhappy dns update problems


Hi, all I have a primary dns server linux that is trying to
update a secondry dns server solaris 9 when named
starts on my primary (linux)and trys to do the update I get a
"client 128.1.4.194#32830: zone transfer 'aberdeen.soo.uk/IN' denied"
message. ftp/telnet are enabled on the solaris and it is also able to query the primary box without problem, it is just the updates
that do not get pushed through. I have checked permissions etc
and all looks ok. hosts and ip's are all ok too.

Any help would be most welcome....

Rob.

You may have to set the "allow transfer" option in named.conf on your master, with an ACL referencing your secondary

Say

acl secondaries {
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ;
}

options {
directory "XXXXX/conf";
pid-file "/var/run/named.pid";
statistics-file "/var/run/named.stats";
dump-file "/var/run/named.db";

# Only allow zone transfers from our secondaries
allow-transfer { secondaries ; } ;
};

You can also specify this in the options for particular zones...
