[Pdns-users] Slave support needed on master?

Hmm, ok.
Well my problem is that when i make a change my slave server does not seem to know about it.
E.g. the salve does not receive the notification.  I see nothing in my logs about a notification being sent to the slave.

I'm not 100% sure i have my slave configured correctly either.  All i have done is added the IP of the slave in the allow-axfr-ips secton
And also i have disable-axfr=no

Do i need to do anything else for to make a server a slave

Hi Luca,

If your server's set up as a master for xyz.com<http://xyz.com>, then the notifies should fail--your server has the correct data already.  It won't hurt for your master server to NOTIFY itself--it'll just ignore it.

I have a single PDNS server configured as a master.
When I make a change (e.g. add a record) I can see the following logs:

Received NOTIFY for xyz.com<http://xyz.com> from but slave support is disabled in the configuration
Received unsuccessful notification report for 'xyz.com<http://xyz.com>' from<>, rcode: 4
Removed from notification list: 'xyz.com<http://xyz.com>' to<> is the IP address of the PDNS server, which is the master server as I mentioned.
So on the config on the master server do I need to slave=yes for the notify messages to work correctly?
