comment What is the best practice to keep a linux ubuntu server up to date (build packages, dist-upgrade, alt repos…)
indeed @KayakJim, though we should have figured it out at the time - but when server load was low maintenance would have been acceptable, we did not think far ahead enough. lesson learned (hopefully).

comment DNS setup for a Mandriva Directory Server 5.0
I am actually using that google dns already as one of the 2 public dns. edited my question for some more info... still not clear to me how exactly the 'private' dns server and the dns client behave when an entry is not found...

comment DNS setup for a Mandriva Directory Server 5.0
I think I'm almost there - by the way, you should edit your comment into your answer as that may happen often. Now, I still have a problem on some hostnames. dig serverfault.com @10.0.0.10 would correctly retrieve the IP address and the authoritative servers, but dig lobusca.com @10.0.0.10 would return a ** server can't find lobusca.com: SERVFAIL. Sounds like the old (broken) public dns are still somehow used? It happens with a few other domains too. Maybe I have not restarted/flushed all required services?

comment DNS setup for a Mandriva Directory Server 5.0
thanks @TiZon unluckily MDS uses resolvconf and ldap so the /etc/resolv.conf is an auto-generated file... so I'm exactly trying to find out generated from what :-D . Also how to correctly do the relay configuration is exactly what I am trying to figure out :-).
