Using bind9.4.2, if I attempt to add a MX record using nsupdate
and there is no A record that matches I get a operation refused message.
[I understand why it fails]
What I would like to be able to do is to give a better error message
back to my user.
Is there anyway to get a better error message out of nsupdate?
for example:
> update add 500 in MX 123
update failed: REFUSED
