Tell PowerDNS to use your Bind Zone

You need to edit your pdns.conf file, edit or add the following lines:


Important notes are:

  • launch tells to use the bind backend
  • bind-config tells where the manifesto is
  • bind-check-interval tells to check the zones each 300 seconds, if you do a change you don’t need to restart PowerDNS, you just wait for the next refresh

If you need more control, you can read the full list of PowerDNS Bind backend parameters documentation.
