1.9.1. RHBA-2011:0510: bind97 fix and enhancement update

Updated bind97 packages that fix a bug and add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. It contains a DNS server (named), a resolver library with routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS, and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly. This package contains version 9.7 of the BIND suite.
These updated bind97 packages fix the following bug:
* BIND could have failed to return queries for subdomains under a newly-added DS (Delegation Signer) record. This occurred because the named daemon failed to validate the new DS record, which was inserted into a trusted DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) validation tree. With this update, the daemon validates new DS records correctly. (BZ#695381)
In addition, these updated bind97 packages provide the following enhancement:
* Previously, bind97 did not contain the root zone DNSKEY. DNSKEY is now located in /etc/named.root.key. (BZ#695382)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated bind97 packages, which resolve this issue and add this enhancement.
