Netware's DNS server doesn't support a lot of the current DNS standards that
BIND does (Well, I'm familiar with 5, not 6). For example NOTIFY, IXFR,
Negative Cache. I've also seen strange things with BIND as a master and
Netware as a slave when the data contained a LOC record.
Netware stores its DNS database in NDS. If you were doing a large zone
transfer it could negatively impact local network traffic and/or NDS
These are a couple of ideas off the top of my head. I wouldn't really
consider these to be BIND causing problems, but a Netware weakness that
shows up when using with BIND.
Really, there's not enough information to go on. Can the Netware admin show
any logs showing what the problems are?
