ProBIND

mysqlBind

myqslBind manages multiple DNS/BIND (8 and 9) name servers. It automates updates to multiple DNS servers, centralizes and stores all zone and resource records for sets of related name servers (ns0...nsN.yourisp.net), and even manages different name server sets from a single browser-based interface. Unlimited master and slave name servers update their zone information via a job queue system that uses MySQL socket connections. Advanced operations can use mySQL replication clusters for high availability and redundancy. Large ISPs and other organizations should note that they can easily add SQL functions to customize the program for their special needs. It supports authentication via SSL Unix password login, SSL personal certificate, or IP-based access with multiple permission levels and individual record ownership. It is also compatible with mysqlISP.

  1. As I have been looking for a tool to manage roughly 100 domains on BIND 9 (*urgs*, djbdns rules) I have installed and tested some of the above. Here are my findings:

    Binder:
    + Easy setup
    + Simple Interface
    – Lack of functions (PTRs, TXT, etc)

    ProBIND:
    + Decent Interface
    + Advanced Options
    – Complex setup
    – Look & Feel

    DNSDusty:
    + Very good idea
    + No database required
    – Very minimalistic interface
    – No advanced options

    mysqlBind (now unxs/Bind):
    + Advanced Options
    + Integrated User/Group management
    – Usability (Admin interface is unusable to me)
    – Complex setup (RPMS did not install cleanly)
    – Lack of documentation

    Right now, if I had to pick one for my environment it would probably be ProBIND (best of the worst).
    If some effort is put into DNSDusty this could become a winner.

    I have yet to check out NicTool (www.nictool.com) which has a good-looking demo and some good comments in Linux Mag.

  2. Thanks for your helpful report. So I will Probind first, before trying any other system. This will prevent me from wasting my time for nothing. After I’ve tested Probind I’ll post a report, too.
