In this example, I make manual changes to a dynamic zone named 230.205.10.in-addr.arpa. All operations below are performed on the master name server for the zone.

To make manual changes to a dynamic zone:

  • Freeze (i.e., prevent dynamic updates to) the zone using rndc freeze
# rndc freeze 230.205.10.in-addr.arpa
  • Make your zone file changes.
  • Reload the zone.
  • Unthaw (i.e., allow dynamic updates to) the zone using rndc thaw
# rndc thaw 230.205.10.in-addr.arpa

Note: You cannot reload a dynamic zone that is not frozen.

# rndc reload 230.205.10.in-addr.arpa
rndc: 'reload' failed: dynamic zone
