Root name server


  I need to setup an internal root name server in my private network. I am
using bind v8.1.1 (Solaris 2.5.1). Does anyone have any pointers on how to
achieve this?

  For those of you not already asleep, the primary nameserver for the root
domain and the organisation domain are the same server (I know this is a bad
idea but that's just how it is). The nameserver starts up OK (no errors)
but when I query the nameserver (dig xxx) it returns zero responses. If I
use a FQDN (dig I get the correct result. I do have "domain
org.dom" in /etc/resolv.conf and "dns hosts" in /etc/nsswitch.conf. If I
dump the nameserver database it looks OK.

You recall correctly.
