I should have also mentioned that switching from an rpm world to a deb world (CentOS to Ubuntu) does come with it's learning curve.  Some utilities are different, networking configuration in particular is located in different places, then there's the whole package management system.  Not an enormous change but significant.

I’m evaluating Oracle Linux to replace CentOS right now for other uses, which Oracle pinky-swears will always be free (beer and speech); it’s essentially another RHEL clone, with some additional stuff for oracle in the repo. I think it’ll end up replacing our CentOS 8 upgrade of ours.

We have been using the ISC COPR packages for BIND on CentOS. With the demise of CentOS, we (along with a few other people on the planet) need to consider where we will move our applications.

We have been completely happy with the packages provided by ISC through COPR. Does anyone want to offer up other linux distributions on which they have had unqualified success with these same packages?

Do things because you should, not just because you can.
