[Pdns-users] PDNS notify zones different in cPanel Server

Hi PDNS Users,

I seem to find the cause.

I noticed the new zones is as “native” and not “master”, and therefore pdns
notify do not send out “native” zones.

Anyone knows what is the difference between native and master zone? And how
to force make a native zone into a master zone, without having to restart
pdns service?

Warmest Regards,

Jackson Yap

Hi PDNS Users,

We have a cPanel server which is using built-in PDNS service.

The problem is after adding new cPanel account/zone, these new zones are
not included in pdns_control notify list.

As you can see below, only after pdns is restarted, then the notify list of
zones are correct.

Anyone is aware what could be the cause and how we can resolve this without
restarting pdns all the time when new account/zones are added in cPanel?

[~]# pdns_control notify '*'

Added 442 MASTER/SLAVE zones to queue

[~]# service pdns restart

Restarting PowerDNS authoritative nameserver: stopping and waiting..done

Starting PowerDNS authoritative nameserver: Mar 17 10:44:25 Loading


[~]# pdns_control notify '*'

Added 444 MASTER/SLAVE zones to queue

Warmest Regards,

Jackson Yap
