I want to install the bind rpm package so I can run a full dns server.
I figure i can bind named to a spefic address and let dnsmasq continue on loopback and general.

But I have no repo configure in the standard EOS install
so how and should I install bind rpm

Hi Alex,

You can setup a repo from CLI like below:

management package
repository Fedora
type yum

and the install bind with yum.


Thanks, any suggest / comment about adding bind. Seems like EOS interacts with dnsmasq - don't want to screw that up

you can just change the port that bind listens on, it's been a while since I used bind, but I think the config file was in /etc/named.conf and there were two lines you could change, one with listen-on port and the other with query-source port.
