Updating bind with dynamic

http/Script which updates the dynamic DNS entry for the client.

############################################################ Bind9 configuration Since the dynamic updates are written to a separate file, it makes sense to store the entire hostname in a separate file.

But for me the dnssec-keygen would just halt without that parameter.

One other suggestion that I’ve seen it that you should switch to another terminal window on the server and run some commands that make some work on the server, to make it fill up the default /dev/random.

Make sure that bind9 can create new files in this directory: mkdir /etc/bind/updates chown bind:bind /etc/bind/updates Add to /etc/bind/local: include "/etc/bind/transfer.key"; zone "ontheroad.example.com" ; A sample file for the "ontheroad.example.com" zone, as well as a "transfer.key" example are included in the conf/ directory.

Make the changes and reload the bind9 configuration. ############################################################ How to dynamic update the hostname?

But for my own home network I really think that the /dev/urandom will be sufficient.

This set of scripts use the 'nsupdate' tool and authenticated communication, to update the DNS entries.

Information The steps in this post shows how to configure the DHCP server to automatically update the DNS records when giving out a new lease to a client computer. Before continuing These steps assumes that you already have a working copy of dhcp3-server and bind9 installed.

If you don’t have that I suggest that you first read my two other posts on how to install them: Setting up a DNS for the local network on the Ubuntu Hardy Heron server Setting up a DHCP server on Ubuntu Hardy Heron Step by step instructions Apparently the Ubuntu server is installed with an App Armor profile that prevents bind to write to the /etc/bind directory.
