Advanced Topics in DNS Administration

The instructor: Jim Reid

This one day course is intended for DNS administrators who wish to extend their understanding of how to configure and manage name servers running BIND9. They should have some experience of running a name server and be familiar with DNS jargon, resource records as well as the syntax of zone files and named.conf. "I've set up master (primary) and slave (secondary) name servers. What else can I do with the name server?"
