This chapter introduced a number of configuration samples that reflect widely used DNS types while bearing in mind that name servers are normally multifunctioned. The objective of the chapter is to acquaint you with the configuration of a set of building blocks, DNS types, from which more complex configurations can be constructed. The text described BIND 9’s powerful new view clause, together with its use in various Stealth configurations. This new clause provides many opportunities to reduce physical configurations in secure perimeter defenses, but careful attention to system design and especially named.conf file contents may be required to maximize its potential.
Chapter 8 presents some advanced DNS configurations including delegation of subdomains, load balancing, and resilience, among many others.
