Zone delegation #48
I noticed that zone delegation is not supported, and in deed the $ORIGIN directive is not supported at all.
I tried to delegate a zone with a glue record but I couldn't define a record that is not in the zone as explained here:
Do you plan to include zone delegation? (or is there a way to accomplish this in the current release?).
Thanks in advance!
You are correct that $ORIGIN is not supported yet which does make zone delegation difficult with fmDNS. It is a feature that's on the roadmap, but not for 1.0. I'm still working on the best way to support it and I'll leave this issue open and targeted for 1.1.

If you have a POC or test environment, you can test out the changes from the 1.1-release branch (https://github.com/WillyXJ/facileManager/tree/1.1-release). With these changes I was able to successfully delegate a zone with a glue record.
v1.1 is not released yet so do not consider it stable at this time.
Thanks my friend...as soon as I can I will try it in my test environment.
It works like a charm, thanks. By the way, it also works if you put this line of code:
Because you are delegating a zone of your domain, and a way of doing that in bind9 is using the syntax:
subdoamin.mydomain.org. IN NS ns.anotherdomain.net.
So $record_name should be $record_name + . "." + $domain_name unless you are defining your zone record (using "@").
Sorry I didn't comment before.
