[Pdns-users] dynamic update requires sub-domain?

    I am running powerdns 4.2.2 and I am working on getting dynamic
updates to happen.

    I have a zone 'example.com' and my dhcp server can send updates for
'test.example.com' with a tsig key and it works as expected.

    When I send updates from the same machine and same config for
'test.net.example.com' however, it doesn't work. The server complains:

UPDATE (44044) from xxx for net.example.com: Remote not listed in
allow-dnsupdate-from or domainmetadata. Sending REFUSED

    I  do not have a 'net.example.com' domain configured. Im expecting
the server to just put these names into 'example.com', dots and all, and
be done with it. I suppose I could solve this by pre-creating
'net.example.com' and such, but I wanted to check and see if this is
expected behavior. It just seems that if I send an update for any name
to the server that it outta find the best matching domain and use the
rules for that. I can edit the zone itself and put
'test.net.example.com' in without trouble.
