Thread: 'view' option in named.conf is nogo

    'view' option in named.conf is nogo

    FC1 running bind 9.2.2.P3.

    Not running in chroot, had too many problems that way...
    Runs find in /var/named as long as I don't use any 'view' statements in named.conf.
    If I do (as per instructions on this site) then I receive the following:

    "/etc/named.conf:9: unknown option 'view'"

    Is 'view' supported by bind 9.x?
    If so, whats the problem?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.[/b]

    Bind 9 only

    Ok, the "view" option is not supported in anything but bind 9.
    So just to make sure:

    [root@home sbin]# rpm -qi bind
