    Secondary DNS question

    I have followed a lot of tutorials on setting up Bind to act as a secondary name server.

    The one question I still have is : do I need to manually add entrys to the named.conf for the zone transfer to take place.

    As far as I can tell everything is working, if I add an entry into my named.conf the zone transfer happens. This still seems very backwards as I would expect that a secondary nameserver would take all its ques from the master server.

    Can any one shed light on this. Do I need to create a script to automaticly populate the named.conf on the secondary server or is there a way of doing it automaticly?

    Thank you

    Yes, you need to put the zone into named.conf before it'll start acting as a secondary to the zone. Bind does not transfer named.conf configurations, just the zone data itself.
    No monkey business.
