Product Description

Review

"I really tried hard to think of something the book should cover that was not already in between the covers, and other than really esoteric stuff, I failed. This is a book for novice and expert alike, and really does make an essential desktop reference for all those creating, modifying or supporting zone files." Raza Rizvi, news@UK "Verdict - Not quite everything there is to know about running BIND, but pretty close - 9/10" - Chris Denton, Linuxformat, March 2003 The book is slim, handy and so full of excellent advice that within a day of my picking it up I had (using the information in it) upgraded a number of BIND servers from v8 to v9 with almost no outage, implementing the new ?rndc? application in the process. I had also implemented dynamically updating sub-domains for containing SVR records for my employer?s new Windows Server 2003 Active Directory domain. Not a bad advert for an extremely useful book!? ? Steven-Ashley Woltering, Ping Dec/Jan

About the Author

Cricket Liu matriculated at the University of California's Berkeley campus, that great bastion of free speech, unencumbered Unix, and cheap pizza. He joined Hewlett-Packard after graduation and worked for HP for nine years. Cricket began managing the hp.com zone after the Loma Prieta earthquake forcibly transferred the zone's management from HP Labs to HP's Corporate Offices (by cracking a sprinkler main and flooding Labs' computer room). Cricket was hostmaster@hp.com for over three years, and then joined HP's Professional Services Organization to cofound HP's Internet Consulting Program. Cricket left HP in 1997 to form Acme Byte & Wire, a DNS consulting and training company, with his friend (and now co-author) Matt Larson. Network Solutions acquired Acme in June 2000, and later the same day merged with VeriSign. Cricket worked for a year as Director of DNS Product Management for VeriSign Global Registry Services. Cricket joined Men & Mice, an Icelandic company specializing in DNS software and services, in September, 2001. He is currently their Vice President, Research & Development. Cricket, his wife, Paige, and their son, Walt, live in Colorado with two Siberian Huskies, Annie and Dakota. On warm weekend afternoons, you'll probably find them on the flying trapeze or wakeboarding behind Betty Blue.

Format: Paperback
Like the BIND book, the DNS and BIND cookbook is an invaluable reference for any DNS/Email/Web admin. This book answers many of the questions raised in the BIND book through numerous illuminating illustrations. It explains the differences between BIND 4, 8 and 9. Plus there's a great section on email and even IPv6
The DNS & BIND cook book coupled with the BIND book are truly the BIND bibles.

"DNS & BIND Cookbook" is a problem-solving text, which Network Administrators will be glad to read. It displayed utmost rationality in its simple and concise way of dealing with most problems, which arise from Domain Name Systems. It also exposed all the factors, which are likely to escalate Berkeley Internet Name Domain problems, before providing their remedies in a clear sequential order.
Net Administrators (as well as voracious users of any of the major Operating Systems) would appreciate the inclusion of an easy-to-digest chapter on Internet Protocol version 6, (IPv6). This book clearly made the mark!
Apart from the rather summarized information, which I noticed on two of its chapters, (i.e.: 'Create Zone Files For Your Domains' and 'Use Increment Transfer'), there is nothing that I will hold against this book. Cricket Liu did a very good job in writing it.

This book has turned out to be the best investment I've made so far in my 20 year IT career. I've always trusted O'Reilly books for their detailed accuracy. However, for the task at hand, I didn't need a book to explain WHY things work... I needed one to tell me how to GET them to work. This book was perfect! It doesn't replace the DNS and BIND, 4th Edition, but is a great compliment... Actually, I'm finding the 4th Edition a perfect compliment to the Cookbook.

I bought this book because I saw it had the "Upgrading to BIND9" chapter. However I found very little information on how zone files are different in the new version or what advantages BIND9 offeres over its predecessors.

Magic bullet for quick DNS fixes/receipies May 13 2005
By Ubiquitous Geebles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you need to understand the difference between BIND 9 or Windows AD DNS and BIND 8, this is not the book for you. But if your management decides to tell you about the imporant new product launch on 20 servers in a new domain they just bought and kept under wraps to stun the competition which they need implemented in some novel way that requires a DNS twist, THIS will save you.

It will also save you if you are really a Windows admin, but you need to configure something in BIND. Or if you need to do something in BIND that you haven't done before.

Or if you don't care WHY you have to do task X, Y and then Z to get the desired result, but you need to know HOW? This is your book.

The WHY is in the BIND book from O'Reilly.

Excellent Oct. 23 2006
By HugeStakkaBoFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't think of anything negative to say about this book. It's certainly not an outright replacement for its bigger cousin "DNS & BIND", but it is clearly written and well-organized; an excellent "how-to" resource to get you up and running quickly with a minimum of fuss and background theory. I'd like to see an updated version which covers DNS-SD in the near future.
