different between views and having multiple instances

In theory, you would use views to serve up different data to subnets.  For example, you may want to show your internal clients one set of IP addresses while the external world see's a subset of that data.  That is a perfect utilization of views.

You may want to setup different instances of BIND if you have different configuration requirements, or if you want different zones to be served on different IP addresses.

Hope that helps.

Hi all

I need to understand the difference between configuring bind views and
having multiple instances of bind. I have 5 network interfaces on my server
and I want to have 2 instances of DNS server (just for testing) and I don't
know which one to do ?
