Reverse DNS Slave Setup

by Alpha01

So a few months back, I enabled reverse DNS on my home BIND server. One thing that I forgot to implement was the additional slave DNS reverse setup. Like many things in BIND, the slave reverse setup was a dead simple process.

It’s simply just a matter of adding the following entry to the slave’s named.conf with the updated master’s DNS IP specified in the masters directive and reload BIND.

zone "" IN {
        type slave;
        file "etc/zones/db.";
        allow-query { any; };
        masters { MasterDNSIP; };
