Hi all,

This question is specifically for people who are using SL server. If you are using Leopard server and what I ask is doable feel free to respond, otherwise I really only want SL based information.

Ok, here's my question:

On Tiger OSX Server, the front end gui for configuring DNS for both forward and reverse DNS was geared toward control over a full class C or better (basically non-subnetted IP ranges, if you attempted to reverse for a subnet of a class C, you had to go into command line to setup the configuration to make it work).

I at home have a /28 subnet of live IP addresses. My upstream requires me to handle my own DNS, both forward and reverse (no big deal really, except for acting as authoritative for reverse on a subnet isn't always the most fun configuration).

Does SL server DNS configuration tool offer the capability to configure reverse DNS based upon a subnet without having to go into command line to set it up. I obviously can do the reverse on command line (since I have before), but once you majorly tweak the DNS configuration files, it kinda breaks the guis ability to edit the DNS and for quick things sometimes I just like to access the configuration panels from my Mac Pro without having to telnet or remote into the server.

I'm seriously considering upgrading my server with a new mac mini server, but I wanted to get some insight into whether some of these capabilities have changed.

My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
QUOTE Thanks
