Replicate forward zones and views to slaves

Replicate forward zones and views to slaves

Replicate forward zones and views to slaves


Hi all,

I have 4 DNS servers (linux CentOS) 1 master and 3 slaves. Those DNS servers have a lot of forward zones on named.conf, what I need is, when I change or create a new forward zone or view on master replicate those zones to the 3 slaves without rsync.

named.conf file:

view "internal" {

match-clients { internalDNS; DNS; };
recursion yes;

zone "zone.com" in {
type forward;
forwarders {;; };
forward only;

zone "zone2.com" in {
type forward;
forwarders {;; };
forward only;


If it is a master zone (with file) I don't have any problem the zone is replicated but the views and the forward zones don't go to slave servers.
