We host our very own DNS server (BIND) for various reasons, including the fact that we deploy and kill machines very often and that we sometimes need to load balance via DNS very quickly.
However, now that we have a good 60 servers, we're kind of having a hard time keeping track of all the records and we tend to do mistakes when editing our zone file. Nothing too bad just yet (we use some other DNS provider as a backup), but I'm looking for a better way than just manually editing the file.
Also, since it's breeze for us to deploy new instances with the infamous chef, doing this by hand is kind of what takes the most time! It would be interested if we could automate this. Anyone knows about this? What's a good practice to edit and maintain this zone file?
