[Pdns-users] DNSSEC and

Hi Xan,

It depends which DNSSEC you choose. If you would pick "Online Signing" for instance (great unless you have very busy servers with lots of domains), the "keying data" is stored in the database as well, so both servers would use the same data to sign the zone, resulting in consistent signatures (as long as your MariaDB replication isn't broken).

See https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/dnssec/modes-of-operation.html#online-signing for more info and other ways of turning on DNSSEC on PowerDNS.

If I just turn it on, wouldn't the two servers step on each other's toes when it came time to do a key rollover?  Or is that not a problem?
