BIND9 PTR Records
Hey all,
I'm configuring a personal name server and I was trying to understand how to configure PTR records.
The IP addresses I need PTR records for are not anywhere near the same subnet, but I don't want to create a zone for each IP I need a PTR Record for.
Basically the way I have it right now I have to have:
//zone for first IP
zone "" {
type master;
file "";
//zone for second IP
zone "" {
type master;
file "";
. . .

What I would like is to have one zone and one file.
I found that I can do this by making a zone "" but when I do this it will consider my name server the SOA for all PTR records, I don't want that to happen.

Thanks in advanced!

Hello, pgibson,

I asked a similar question a couple months ago. The one reply I got had to do more with aliasing one domain to another via zone files, and not the actually combination of zone files.

I suspect BIND doesn't actually support combining zone files. As non-intuitive as zone files are, I'm not sure I really mind the extra work of having multiple files over a single file that is even more non-intuitive than normal.
