nsd running as slave

Hi Sebastian,

i would not run a nameserver in slave mode in a registry
environment. The best thing would be if you run all
nameservers as master. You have to provide the zonefile
to all the nameservers and then recompile the zonefile
at the nameserver which runs nsd. With the bind nameserver
you proceed as normal.

There are a lot of possibilities to implement this way.
If you need help, please ask for it.

Best Regards
