Is this true about Leopard Server DNS Service

    I heard some says that when you don't setup the DNS information right the first time before clicking the save button, your are SCREWED, and there is no way of fixing it beside reformatting and reinstall the OS?

    I reformatted my server 3 times today just because I mess around with the DNS zones by trying different server names.

    I'm confused.

    I wouldn't think this is true. BIND holds its config in zone files, which are easy to erase and start over.

    Where is this zone fie located?

    No idea. You'll have to search your filesystem or Google.

    Not as far as I know, BUT you DO NOT want to save before the primary zone is set up fully when changing the default zone, THEN you will have a tough time making it work. Scratch that... it will NOT work. Maybe that's what you might have heard?
