My orig question was this:
> I have a problem regarding to the installation of our new BIND server.
> Our old domain name is Informatik.TU-Cottbus.DE. For some reasons, we
> want to rename our domain to CS.TU-Cottbus.DE.
> For incoming telnet requests, mails etc. the server should be able to

> Does anybody know a solution for that problem??

There were 2 solutions suggested:

1. To have these entries in named.boot:

directory /opt/named/etc ; or whatever you want
primary CS.TU-Cottbus.DE db.CS
primary Informatik.TU-Cottbus.DE db.CS
primary db.141.43.3
primary db.127.0.0
cache . db.cache

2. To have an entry in TU-Cottbus.DE's named database:

Informatik IN CNAME CS.TU-Cottbus.DE.

We decided to choose the 2nd way.

Kindest regards, Guenter
