Multiple choice: DNS servers on CentOS Some people say "everything is a f...ine DNS problem"; we say: you have the choice. Whether you're a developer who needs a DNS name server on your laptop to test your latest distributed whizbang app in a taxi, or whether you're a network administrator who has to offer DNS services to a corporate environment: which DNS server should you choose? In this short talk I'll give a quick overview of the choice you have on CentOS: authoritative vs. recursive; big vs. small; database vs. files; complex vs. simple; DNS and/or DNSSEC.
