Let's say I configure BIND on a linux server and specify in named.conf that the server should act as a master. Additionally, I specify an IP address of a slave that is allowed to connect and access zone records.
Now, I configure BIND on a slave server and specify it to look for updates from the IP of my master server.
My questions is as follows: If I create a zone record for example.com on the master server only (i.e. I don't touch the slave), will the slave query the master server and transfer the zone info...
Do I also have to create the zone record on the slave as well in order for the transfer of info from the master to work correctly?
Basically I am trying to create a name server that has a slave (or two) where all I have do do is make changes to the master without having to touch the slave(s).
Is this possible?
