#4939 [RFE] Generic support for unknown DNS RR types (RFC 3597)
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by pspacek.

[3597]]([http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3597|RFC) describes mechanism necessary supporting for unknown/new DNS RR types in DNS servers. BIND 9 we use supports this so should expose this functionality too. It would a future-proof workaround for #4934.

Expected scope:

  • 1 new attribute with sub-types
  • user interface for this new attribute

A patch contains the attribute definition is on review.


  • 3ababb7 DNS: add UnknownRecord to schema

User interface is still missing.

With this fix, nsupdate for unknown attributes will work, which was the main target for the work. I talked to pspacek, the UI for this feature may need to wait for later. I created #5098 for the UI.

I am thus closing the ticket.
