[Pdns-users] How to get PowerDNS to answer all requests with the same response...?

Okay, I finally got back to this and I am a little lost I guess.  I have set
up a backup database and I have put in the 'domains' table a record for the
zone ".", and then I went under the 'records' tables and I added an SOA, A,
and NS record for the domain, but it's still not responding to all queries
at that point.  Any further ideas?

Ah, I didn't actually read what you wrote, sorry about that. Yes, you could
setup a "." zone with a "*" redirect. To do this however, you can't use
2.9.21 since due to small bug it is unable to serve the "." zone.

You could use a PowerDNS snapshot on http://svn.powerdns.com/snapshots 

Good luck!
