I would like to see PowerDNS support for the AFSDB record type. The AFSDB record type is specified in RFC 1183 (

The record is used by OpenAFS (, a very scalable open source distributed file system. OpenAFS clients are capable of reading the names of the central servers from DNS by using this record.

The reply needed by OpenAFS is something like:

% host -a

OpenAFS and PowerDNS (especially with an LDAP backend) are well suited for large scale multiplatform environments, so AFSDB support should be an interesting enhancement.
