Default MyDNS notify not working

I know this has been discussed a million times, but I just can't get it working.

I'm running ISPconfig 3.0.3 (just upgraded from 3.0.1.6) on Ubuntu 9.04. On this server, I have MyDNS 1.2.8.27 as the master DNS. Then I have a second server running bind9 on Ubuntu 10.04 as the slave DNS (no ISPconfig here).

On the master (MyDNS) I have:
Code:
allow-axfr = yes
allow-tcp = yes
allow-update = yes
notify-enabled = yes
notify-source = 0.0.0.0
Also, each zone has the slave's IP in the xfer field.

On the slave (bind9) I have:
Code:
server <MASTER_IP> {
    request-ixfr no;
};
As well as all the zones from the master like this:
Code:
zone "<DOMAIN>" {
    type slave;
    file "/var/cache/bind/db.<DOMAIN>";
    masters { <MASTER_IP>; };
};

The problem is, the slave only receives notifies when MyDNS is restarted on the master. However, if I change a DNS record in ISPconfig, no notification is sent to the slave, and consequently the slave does not receive the updated record. If I run `rndc retransfer <DOMAIN>` on the slave, the record gets updated.

What could be the cause of this problem?

mydns

The only solution is to use bind instead of mydns.

Is it possible to make ISPconfig either restart mydns every time a DNS record is changed, or (better) call a remote script on the slave server, which can then invoke a rndc retransfer?

I would also gladly use bind instead of mydns, but I fear making the switch on a live server with lots of zones is far from trivial.

I decided to switch to bind after all. It turns out it's not that difficult at all. I followed your instructions and it all went fine. After the switch, notifies started working out-of-the-box, no configuration necessary.

Thanks for your help, till.
