Description

Hi All,

Please be informed that, the DNS zone configuration files /var/named/dynamic/db.98.10.10.in-addr.arpa, and /var/named/dynamic/db.wdprocessing.pvt are not updated automatically when using Smart Proxy to manage the DNS.

To update these files, I have to restart named service using systemctl restart named.

The DNS service is installed on the same Foreman server

So How to update the DNS zone configuration files without restarting named service, please?

Best regards.

Named has journal files it writes to. It's only flushed to disk on restart, rndc freeze. Note that no changes are allowed when a zone is frozen. rndc thaw enables them again. Possibly there's another command to flush changes to disk as well.

Overall I wonder why this is needed. If you need the contents of the zone, I'd advise on using an AXFR query to get the real contents. dig axfr example.com @localhost is what you typically use.
