   An update that has three recommended fixes can now be


   This update for yast2-dns-server provides the following fixes:

   Fix handling of zones (bsc#898659):

   - Extend list of zones marked as system (internal) with (0\.)
   - Do not allow to edit system zones (they belong to bind package)
   - Check if 'bind' package is installed before writing the configuration
   - Mark all imported zones as 'modified' to be written later
   - Mark all imported non-system zones as 'is_new' to create a zone file for
   - Flush /etc/named.conf cache 'after' writing zones (instead of 'before')
   - Use "" as the default NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY (instead of 0)
   - Do not write system zones to LDAP (bnc#746401)
   - If systems zones are marked as modified, they are written to named
     configuration (if LDAP is not in use).

   Fix Import() and Write() in AutoYast (bnc#898659):

   - Imported zones were not written to the system as they were not marked as
   - Directory /etc/named.d/ was used even if it didn't exist
   - The whole named.conf was rewritten from scratch as Yast thought that
     something has changed that file while Yast was running.
