We currently have BIND running on one of our servers. Its a primary
name server for us, and a secondary for a partner of ours (and they are
I'd like to setup BIND on another server here that would basically be a
mirror of ours, ready to be used if ours fails. Whats the best way to
go about this? I could FTP all the named files over once an hour or
whatever. But I was thinking there should be a way to use the
master/slave functionality to have the new server just slurp all the
data from our master server automagically? (if thats true why do I need
to always add my new zones to named.conf on our secondary server?) Any
suggestions or URLs welcome.
