    Default Yast DNS and DHCP configuration

    Hi,

    I have copied a DNS configuration (/etc/named.conf) from 11.1 to 11.2. When I try to configure the DNS via YAST (opensuse 11.2) I receive a start error related to the instruction
    Code:
    controls {
      inet 127.0.0.1 allow { localhost; } keys { XXXX; };
    };
    after any update in YAST the declaration is changed to
    Code:
    controls {keys { XXXX; };;
      inet 127.0.0.1 allow { localhost; };;
    which is erroneous and stop the start of bind
    I can reproduce it and think this is a bug but before opening a report via bugzilla I want to have a confirmation
    If I configure the DHCP and set the DDNS (dynamic update of DNS from the DHCP server) then I receive also the error

    Anybody see the same?

    Regards
    Philippe

    There have been updates for yast2-network and bind. Did you apply them?

    Very good. You did the updates, but Yast still gets it wrong. According to the official administrators manual for bind 9.4 the syntax is:

    Code:
    controls {
       [ inet ( ip_addr | * ) [ port ip_port ] allow {  address_match_list  }
                    keys { key_list }; ]
       [ inet ...; ]
       [ unix path perm number owner number group number keys { key_list }; ]
       [ unix ...; ]
    };
    As yast produces something else I would file a report.
