- Binary zone file on BIND9 2 answers
I noticed that a month or two ago that my bind records for the slave server became unreadable. The consequence of having an unreadable record is that it appears as though Webmin cannot read the record. I used to be able to go into Webmin on the slave machine to validate that the record was updated there, I can no longer do that.
It appears to still be a valid record because I can query the server itself and it returns the same data (NSLOOKUP, etc). So it appears as though Bind can read the file fine.
I would like this resolved, but I'm not sure where to look. Any thoughts?
Here is are the the master and slave records:
BIND version 9.8.4
Debian Linux 7
$ttl 38400 servertest.com. IN SOA testdns.com. foobar.testdns.com. ( 1377180224 7200 3600 1209600 38400 ) servertest.com. IN NS ns1.testdns.com. servertest.com. IN NS ns2.testdns.com.
BIND version 9.9.2
Ubuntu Linux 13.04

All the details are there, but the slave is unreadable. (copy and pasted from PuTTy
