Hi there

okay okay okay I know that underscores _ are NOT allowed in hostnames.

However, i'm in an environment with a lot of crap, and tons of names with

I run Bind 8.2.3 on solaris (in lab), and it rejects the hostnames.
8.1.2 warned but continued.

Is there any solution to stop Bind from rejecting hostnames with _'s?
I looked through the 8.2.3 docs, but couldn't find anything.

Or is this a 'get the source and modify the parser' action?

Sincerely Yours
