That then becomes quite painful when a customer asks for a single server
to change over a single server, and then 80-or-so other files have to
change to accommodate that. Essentially, as much work as not having the
include in the first place, for everyday operations.
Really wishing for a $OVERRIDE flag, that replaces entries from this
point on in the zone file.
Thanks for the insight.
