Hello, thanks for replying.
Regarding building BIND, are you sure the setting should go in
make.conf and not src.conf - here is the relevant text from the
src.conf man page:
Setting this variable will prevent any part of BIND from being
built. When set, it also enforces the following options:
Thankyou for the web link for the DLZ driver however I had already
seen it; my confusion is what is the difference between BIND built
with the DLZ LDAP driver and BIND built with the 'sdb' (simplified
database interface) option as specified in
http://bind9-ldap.bayour.com/ and as built in the dns/bind97-sdb port?
If these are two different ways for BIND to use LDAP, which one should I choose?
