Its use will be explained later. When the file name is parsed, the “data splitter” character is used to separate each data field in the file name. In the SQL drivers type is the second field, and ttl is the first. The data root is specified at argv[1] immediately after the “filesystem” driver name, it is not optional. To that end, source code enhancements will always attempt to follow the current BIND 9 coding style and standard. Its flexibility is best demonstrated by the variety of databases and database schemas that DLZ supports. Using this data, all previous answers to DNS queries would be answered in the same way.

This is an essential condition of funding, as the NLnet Foundation supports network software projects that are open for reuse. Next the driver will check the file system for the following path: The ODBC driver should be able to support zone transfer. Please try this and let me know how it turns out. Where possible, comments were added which explained relevant parts of BIND 9’s existing code. By implementing a cache, you are adding a delay between the updates to the database and the time those updates are visible in DNS.


We are telling BIND that we want to use the filesystem driver. After each new driver is finished, a full release of DLZ will be published. When the max label length is NOT 0 the file system driver needs additional help to know what the hostname is for zone transfers.

The word “filesystem” is located at argv[0]. If the maximum label length were 5, labels longer than five characters would be split up. The LDAP driver will allow looking up zones in the database, as well as looking up zone records in the same database. Ideally, this driver will be included into BIND’s distribution as a built in driver.

Follow the sequence below for a better understanding. The file system driver will perform a series of tests to see if the correct file paths exist. This database is very simple to setup and provides very good performance.

The file system driver will provide a high-speed database for use with DLZ. Performance test results will be published on the DLZ website.

The data root is specified at argv[1] immediately after the “filesystem” driver name, it is not optional. Like all other DLZ drivers ” ” is used as the hostname fule the zone apex. The second parameter “-d 1” sets BIND’s debug level to 1.

NLnet; BIND DLZ; Phase 2 Project Plan

Features disabled or unavailable on this platform: But once you start using it you will see how easy it is to use it. Want to extend the filesystem to another datastore by a fellow student.


I would suggest that you be sure that you are using the named binary that you compiled by executing named with the fully qualified path, ie: The Bind version is 9. The interface developed in Phase 1 of the DLZ project is still subject to modification. DLZ was built to be flexible.

The file system driver maps DNS data to file entries. This test would succeed. It should always start with a “. Want to extend the filesystem to another datastore by a fellow student; stepsei stepsei-VirtualBox: A LDAP driver will be implemented. This will fule explained more later in this document.

Bind-DLZ with MySQL

This will be done so that a unit of work a driver in development can be completed without the possibility of introducing new bugs that could be caused during migration to a newer version of BIND. Infact, I recommend it! When a query for www.
