NAME

  named.star - Defines data used by named to initialize	the BIND (Berkeley
  Internet Name	Domain)	name server file

SYNOPSIS

  /etc/namedb/named.*

DESCRIPTION

  The data files referenced in the named.conf file can have any	names, but
  they are generally given names of the	form /etc/namedb/named.*.  This	nam-
  ing convention is used for convenience in maintaining	the named daemon's
  file.

  The records in the named data	files are called resource records. Except for
  comments (starting with a ; (semicolon) and continuing to the	end of the
  line), the resource records in the data files	generally follow the format
  of the resource records that the named daemon	returns	in response to
  queries from resolver	routines.

  The named.conf file is the default configuration (or boot) file for the
  named	server.	 The named daemon reads	the start-up file when the named dae-
  mon starts and when receiving	the signal SIGHUP.

EXAMPLES

   1.  The following examples portray two domains on two different networks:
	    Domain
	    abc.aus.osf.com,
	    Internet address 192.9.201.n

	    (where n varies for	each system on the network)

	    Domain
	    xyz.aus.osf.com,
	    Internet address 128.114.100.n

	    (where n varies for	each system on the network)

       In this sample configuration, both the primary and the secondary	name
       servers are in the abc.aus.osf.com domain, and host hera	is the gate-
       way host.

   2.  The following are sample	entries	in a named.ca file:
	    ; root name	servers.
		     1		IN    NS    relay.osf.com.
	    relay.osf.com.   3600000	IN    A	    129.114.1.2

   3.  The following two files are sample entries from the named.data files
       for hosts venus and allen.  (The	data files can have any	name you
       choose, as long as that name is defined in the named.boot file. In
       this case, the names are	named.abcdata and named.xyzdata.)

       The named file for host venus is	in the following file, called
       named.abcdata:
	    ;OWNER	   TTL	     CLASS TYPE	    RDATA
	    ;local domain server is venus
	    @	IN   SOA   venus   bob.robert.abc.aus.osf.com. (

	    ; delimiter	for WKS
	    kronos	       IN    A	      192.9.201.2
	    krabc	       IN    CNAME    kronos
	    hera	       IN    A	      192.9.201.5

	    robert.abc.aus.osf.com. IN	  MX 10	   venus.abc.aus.osf.com.

       The named file for host allen is	in the following file, called
       named.xyzdata:
	    ;OWNER	   TTL	     CLASS TYPE	    RDATA
	    ;local domain server is venus
	    xyz.aus.osf.com.  IN   SOA	 venus.abc.aus.osf.com.	 bob.robe

	    ; address for local	loopback
	    localhost	      IN    A	     127.1
	    ; address of machines in the same domain
	    allen	      IN    A	     128.114.100.3
	    allen	      IN    MX	     10	  venus.abc.aus.osf.com.
	    alxyz	      IN    CNAME    allen
			      IN    WKS	     128.114.100.3 udp (tftp
					     nameserver	domain)
			      IN    WKS	     128.114.100.3 tcp (echo telnet

	    ; delimiter	for WKS
	    fred	      IN    A	     128.114.100.10
	    mike	      IN    A	     128.114.100.11
			      IN    HINFO    HP-800 OS1

   4.  The following is	a sample named.local file that might appear on hosts
       in either of the	sample domains:
	    @	IN   SOA   venus.abc.aus.osf.com. gail.zeus.abc.aus.osf.com.
	    (
				       1.1     ;serial
				       3600    ;refresh
				       600     ;retry
				       3600000 ;expire
				       86400)  ;minimum
		   IN	 NS	venus.abc.aus.osf.com.
	    1	   IN	 PTR	localhost.

   5.  The following two files are sample entries from the named.rev files
       for hosts venus and allen.  For this example, the files are called
       named.abcrev and	named.xyzrev.

       The reverse file	for host venus is in the following file, called
       named.abcrev:
	    @  IN   SOA	  venus.abc.aus.osf.com. bob.robert.abc.aus.osf.com.
	    (
				       1.1     ;serial

				       3600000 ;expire
				       86400)  ;minimum
	    9.201.192.in-addr.arpa.   IN    NS	   venus.abc.aus.osf.com.

	    7.201.9.192.in-addr.arpa. IN    PTR	   ernie.abc.aus.osf.com.

       The reverse file	for host allen is in the following file, called
       named.xyzrev:
	    @  IN   SOA	  venus.abc.aus.osf.com. bob.robert.abc.aus.osf.com.
	    (
				       1.1     ;serial
