Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 AS BIND caching-nameserver Update

Posted on in Categories BIND Dns, package management, RedHat/Fedora Linux, Security Alert, Sys admin, Troubleshooting last updated June 18, 2008

An updated caching-nameserver package that fixes a bug is now available under Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

The caching-nameserver package includes the configuration files that will make BIND, the DNS name server, act as a simple caching nameserver. Many users on dial-up connections use this package along
with BIND for this purpose. The address of L root server have been updated. All users of caching-nameserver should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.

To update just enter the following command as root user:
# up2date -u

  1. Hi Vivek,
    If I upgrade, will it overwrite my existing caching-nameserver.conf file or any other related configuration files ?
    Many Thanks!
