I'm actually no longer responsible for corporate DNS.
So, while not exactly doing it for fun -- well yes, there is *always*
that element for us, right :) -- I do have much latitude in what I do
with it and want to keep up as close as possible.
The reason I recently tried BIND9 is, I that was thinking (no lie :)
"Gosh. There sure seem to be a lot of RCs coming out for BIND9.
I feel a little like a "user" [in a pejorative sense].
Here these guys are busting their butts and I'm not doing
*anything* to help -- still lazily sloggin' around with BIND8.
At least I could start running BIND9 and see if I find
anything, even as unlikely as that'll be given the operating
So I really *am* trying to be a good citizen :)

Thanks for clarifying your thoughts and concerns. I think we can agree
differ on the details and the small print.
We're not so far apart when it comes to the upgrading issue.
If you want the new goodies, upgrade to 9. Yes, it's not a simple
installing over bind 8 issue. There are some details that need to be
looked after, specified in the migration doc. I say upgrade to 9 when I
actually mean: don't expect the new goodies in bind 8.
If bind 8 works for the environment one is responsible for, don't
In general people upgrade their servers & tools for a reason. One can be
the new goodies or keeping up with the latest material, or just plainly
following a learning curve.
I do ofcourse not recommend an ad-hoc/fun upgrade for productions
For any servers for that matter. I could never understand companies
overnight upgraded their whole machinepark from one OS to another.
