Suspending DNS Zone

Hi,

We use SimpleDNS v5.  When suspending an user/account in SolidCP it would be useful if it could suspend the DNS zone as well, as it does for website, FTP and mail.

Thanks

Pete

Hello,

I understand your comment however in practice this is going to be hard to implement, Website/ FTP / etc have a "stop" function which can be started again, DNS zones however do not.

The problem would then be that you have to remove the dns zone from the DNS servers, yet keep a backup of all records and settings somewhere (as SolidCP normally reads dns settings directly from the DNS Servers).

Regards,

Marco

Hi Marco,

SimpleDNS has a suspend option (I can't comment on MS DNS).  Therefore could that not be used?

Thanks

Pete

I'm not sure about simple dns (never really used it my self) but MS DNS / most dns servers do not.

This would mean to create this feature it will be very specific for one dns provider (which requires alot of checks / code changes through out the project as currently most of portal and enterprise share the same codes for all dns providers).

I have a similar question, i was sure that the dns zones used to be suspended when an account was suspended but I see that the dns keeps running. not sure when this stopped..

Msdns does have the option to pause and resume the dns zones using powershell.

The Suspend-DnsServerZone cmdlet suspends a Domain Name System (DNS) zone. While suspended, the DNS server ignores all queries for the zone. Use the Resume-DnsServerZone cmdlet to resume a suspended zone.
