An updated system-config-bind package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The system-config-bind package provides a graphical user interface (GUI) to configure the Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) Domain Name System (DNS) server.
This updated system-config-bind package includes fixes for the following bugs:
Prior to this update the system-config-bind utility no longer parsed include statements within a view clause. Consequently zones in a config file referenced by an include statement within a view clause were not shown. With this update include statements are correctly parsed and zones referenced in this way are once again shown.
When configuring a name server (NS) record for a domain, if an invalid name was given in the Server Domain Name field a modal dialog box would display, "Bad DNS Name:", and clicking "OK" did not allow a valid name to be entered. Consequently it was not possible to correct the mistake. With this update the dialog box now correctly responds to clicking "OK" and a correct Server Domain Name can be entered.
All users of system-config-bind are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
