I have a couple of questions since I'm about to switch from BIND to

	1. Which database scheme are you using?
	2. Which MySQL version are you using?
	3. Which MySQL table type?
	4. What about secondary NS - how did you implement that?
	5. Would you mind sending me your PowerDNS configuration?

Thanks for your answers in advance.
