Who should attend?
DNS administrators who wish to extend their understanding of how to
configure and manage name servers running BIND9. Attendees should
have some experience of running a BIND8 or BIND9 name server and be
familiar with DNS jargon for resource records, as well as the syntax of zone
files and named.conf. This tutorial will answer the question, "I've set up
master (primary) and slave (secondary) name servers. What else can I do
with the name server?"
