Misleading/Incorrect DNS configuration in the Ubuntu Server Docs
regaurding DNS setup/install

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs
I'm running Ubuntu Workstation 9.04 (with lots of "server"
applications installed). My Cisco ASA is performing the DHCP while
this computer is doing DNS.
In the DNS section of the Ubuntu Server docs (http://doc.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/dns.html) you show setting up the new DNS zone files in the /etc/bind directory. This works all well and good until you try to do DDNS (which tries to create/write to journal files). Apparmor blocks the ability to write to the /etc/bind directory no matter what you set the file access to. However, while reading the forums someone mentioned modifying the apparmor config relating to BIND. While editing /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.named I came across this:
# /etc/bind should be read-only for bind
# /var/lib/bind is for dynamically updated zone (and journal) files.
I think there should be a note about putting zone files in
/var/lib/bind instead of /etc/bind IF you want DDNS setup. (It only
took me 1/2 a day to figure this out.) :-P
Maybe even put all "local" zone files in /var/lib/bind?
