Running BIND on MacOS X ?

Hi Frank, we have been running two public DNS servers for our 250+
hosted domains for well over a year on Mac OS 10.3 without any problems
whatsoever...Not to mention the fact that we're doing it on two Blue
and White G3's with 256 mb of ram! I'm not sure if your planning on
running other services on the dual processor G5 XServe, and what your
current DNS load is, but a dual processor G5 system is way overkill for
simple DNS services. I would say save the money and go with a single
processor system and treat yourself to a nice PowerBook or iPod. ;)
I have go agree that Apple's Server Admin utility is lacking on being
able to configure features on BIND, but Server Admin writes directly to
the /etc/named.conf file. If you need to configure more features than
what Server Admin has exposed, just use your favorite text editor and
edit the named.conf file directly.
If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
