[Pdns-users] Problem with SOA auto-generation.

Thank you, BC. this is very helpful because I kept expecting my master zones
to just create the serial numbers necessary. When I took your suggestion and
added them to those records for which serial numbers weren't automatically
created, I noticed the numbers change with each change I made to the record.

This also helped me understand that, unless the record is changed, the
serial number won't likely automatically change, either.

Finally, read the thread and think designating the domains as master (or
slave) makes sense since not all nameservers work the same and my
superslaves may not necessarily pick up changes, especially those buried in
what some nameserver software considered supermasters--those that contain
all of the records for the domain, including mirror IP addrresses, secondary
NS, redirects, etc.

Now that I've gotten the basics down, I think I'll work on the more complex
stuff like figuring out how configs that are native to bind (like using zone
files to do round-robin) can work in PDNS.

Thank all of you for your input. We'll see if I can put it all together to
solve this issue. :)
