I am in the middle of migrating from BIND to PowerDNS using pipebackend,
and I have run into some trouble.
First, wildcard records.
Say, I have the following records:
foo.example.com IN CNAME 22.214.171.124
*.example.com IN CNAME 126.96.36.199
dig foo.example.com should return 188.8.131.52
dig bar.example.com should return 184.108.40.206
The question is: if I know I have wildcard records, then I have to do a
wildcard query? Currently what I do is to first query non-wildcard
records, and if none is found, then I do a wildcard match. Is that
correct? Do the backend have to know about wilcrads at all?
I often get AXFR queries from pdns, which look like "AXFR 1".
What zone should I return in this case?
What I do now is to store the last domain queried, and when an AXFR is
received, I send out the zone according to that last domain. Is this
