set up  a primary and secondary dns server on
solaris using bind 8 or 9?

I don't know of any scripts for that. Of course the definitive reference on Bind is "DNS and BIND" published by O'Reilly & Assoc. but that may be more than you want to know. There are a lot of Internet resources of Bind 8, like the Linux DNS HowTo (http://www.redhat.com/mirrors/LDP/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.html). And you you'd like I can supply a set of template files that implement a simple primary and secondary DNS. If you want those send an email to jim@entrophy-free.net. Please include the URL to this question and let me know whether you want the Bind 8 or Bind 9 flavor. If you are willing to use either version of Bind, Bind 9 would probably be the better choice.

I would probably go with BIND 9 since that's the version that will be updated.

Check out http://www.ludd.luth.se/~kavli/BIND-FAQ.html -- that will give you a fairly good start on getting things configured.

And of course, as jlevie points out, DNS and BIND is the ultimate resource.

Hi siunix,

    You can down the template files from the following site:

     http://soldc.sun.com/technotes/

     It'll give you some infor about how to setup a DNS server.

    You can find more information about how to set-up DNS in:

http://www.redhat.com/mirrors/LDP/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.html

and:
http://www.ludd.luth.se/~kavli/BIND-FAQ.html

    Please remember for Solaris 7/8, you need to use the file:named.conf
NOT named.boot, and put in under /etc, the other files you can put it somewhere you wanted, as long as you specify it in you configurations files.

   Good luck!

If you prefer web based: Try webmin (http://www.webmin.com/webmin)  You will need Perl 5x installed.

good luck
