Yeah. They made TTL to 2 hours.

Thanks. Very good idea indeed. Do you have a sample handy? 8)

I'm not familiar with TSIG. Is GSS-TSIG a requirement for AD? That may 
explain some of the LDAP errors I'm seeing on Windows Server 2003. E.g.,

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    MSADC
Event Category:    LDAP Operations
Event ID:    8026
Date:        9/30/2004
Time:        2:37:18 PM
User:        N/A
Computer:    EXCH2003
LDAP Bind was unsuccessful on directory exch2003.arkon-group.com for 
distinguished name ''. Directory returned error:[0x34] Unavailable.

Perhaps it is best that I setup MS DNS to grab updates from bind?
