BIND Add Host

Jump to navigationJump to search

Here is a screenshot showing the actual commands I typed on my VM running BIND version 9.11 on a CentOS Linux release 8.4.210 virtual machine in order to add a new host to my domain on my network. It just shows the commands, but not what I did while typing these commands, which I will detail after showing the screenshot of just the commands typed. Of course, since this is a critical sensitive administrative task, you must become the root superuser, either by using the "sudo" command, as shown in my screenshot, or just as the "root" user.
