    fedora Core 4 with bind DNS...

    I am trying to stop the Open DNS servers warning... I added

    allow-recursion {

    in the options section in /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf and restarted named which got rid of the error. Great!

    BUT... when I changed a DNS setting in ispconfig later, it recreated the /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf and took out the entry.

    I tried adding another options section below the changes line in the named.conf file, but bind chokes on that, can't have two options sections...

    How can I get this directive to be used by bind so that I no longer have an Open DNS server?

    you need to edit a copy of named.conf.master and save it to customized_templates dir
    cp /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/
    then edit your changes
    vi /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/customized_templates/named.conf.master
    your changes will not be over wrote then during a update.

    The solution from daveb is fine in my opinion. The customized_templates folder is to add permanent changes to the ispconfig templates. ISPConfig will use this template as basis for the named.conf file in future.
