[Pdns-users] What is a domain?

Thanks for all the replies. Now I have a couple more questions: * Is the
records.id field used for anything? My records table is actually going to
be a view onto a complex set of joins, unions, and cartesian joins, and
trying to give each of the resulting records a unique id would be a major
pain. * What are all the fields in the domains table for? For native
replication, are they needed, or can I leave them out of the schema? The
documentation seems to imply that I only need the name, id, and
type='NATIVE' fields for native replication.

(Sorry, I misrouted this before. I forgot to reply all, as this list works
differently from most I use.)
