DNS 2010 v9.7.2 64bit version for Solaris 10 Ultar-sparc T2+ edition

There new build version of BIND v9 DNS server special edition for Sun UltraSparc T1/T2+ CPU platform

New Features

  • Zones may be dynamically added and removed with the “rndc addzone” and “rndc delzone” commands. These dynamically added zones are written to a per-view configuration file. Do not rely on the configuration file name nor contents as this will change in a future release. This is an experimental feature at this time.
  • Added new “filter-aaaa-on-v4” access control list to select which IPv4 clients have AAAA record filtering applied.
  • A new command “rndc secroots” was added to dump a combined summary of the currently managed keys combined with statically configured trust anchors.
  • Added support to load new keys into managed zones without signing immediately with "rndc loadkeys". Added support to link keys with "dnssec-keygen -S" and "dnssec-settime -S".

DNS BIND v9.7 Release for Sun Solaris 10 x86_x64 bit

BIND 9.7.0 includes a number of changes from BIND 9.6 and earlier releases. Most are intended to simplify DNSSEC configuration.

New features include:

  • Fully automatic signing of zones by "named"
  • Simplified configuration of DNSSEC Lookaside Validation (DLV).
  • Simplified configuration of Dynamic DNS, using the "ddns-confgen" command line tool or the "local" update-policy option. (As a side effect, this also makes it easier to configure automatic zone re-signing.)
  • New named option "attach-cache" that allows multiple views to share a single cache.
  • DNS rebinding attack prevention.
  • New default values for dnssec-keygen parameters.
  • Support for RFC 5011 automated trust anchor maintenance (see README.rfc5011 for additional details).
  • Smart signing: simplified tools for zone signing and key maintenance.
  • The "statistics-channels" option is now available on Windows.
  • A new DNSSEC-aware libdns API for use by non-BIND9 applications (see README.libdns for details).
  • On some platforms, named and other binaries can now print out a stack backtrace on assertion failure, to aid in debugging.
  • A "tools only" installation mode on Windows, which only installs dig, host, nslookup and nsupdate.
  • Improved PKCS#11 support, including Keyper support and explicit OpenSSL engine selection (see README.pkcs11 for additional details).

Solaris 10 wanboot installation or Solaris 10 installation over web / HTTP

In this articles I will provide the Solaris 10 Installation mode over HTTP named as WanBoot method for SPARC Systems.

This method is helpful for that systems where is not possible to use Install Server in the same Ethernet Network segment as client location and also not possible to place Boot Server too.

For Example: you have one or several new fresh servers which is located in DMZ Zone or isolated by Firewall and by Enterprise rules there not acceptable to open NFS,TFTP,SSH,RSH,Telnet,FTP services between Install Server and possible new systems, but Administrators agree to open one TCP port – HTTP or HTTPS. Here I will provide only HTTP installation way.

Another possible situation where you can use this method can be when new fresh system located on customer site with Internet access and you just have remote access to this system into ALOM over VPN or direct access though Internet. Therefore you can use your already prepared Installation WanBoot server for this systems.
