Do i restart named after updating zone file

The default Arch So to facilitate general DNS lookups from your host, your configuration file must have 127.0.0.1 as a name server.See Resolv.conf#Preserve DNS settings on how to keep this from being overwritten.This statement may be used in a zone, view or global options clause. IP address(es) that are allowed to transfer (copy) the zone information from the server (master or slave for the zone).The default behaviour is to allow zone transfers to any host.

This entry specifies the file where zone data for the domain is located.A 127.0.0.1 @ IN A 127.0.0.1 * IN A 127.0.0.1 records - we ignore those). It will point whatever domain in this zone to 127.0.0.1 (localhost, probably nowhere if you’re not running a web server locally). Let’s make another zone file in doesn’t point to any useful domain — you can make additional zone files that point to internal zones too, but I don’t want to reveal network internals here).And, because this is simulating 1968, after adding these files, they still do nothing at all.allow-notify applies to slave zones only and defines a match list, for example, IP address(es) that are allowed to NOTIFY this server and implicitly update the zone in addition to those hosts defined in the masters option for the zone.The default behaviour is to allow zone updates only from the masters IP(s).
