Anyone aware of any good DNS training that occurs somewhere besides Canada? This person I need to send would need a special Visa to go there.

Hi Pete, What do you want your employee to get out of the training? Would this be your basic "Configure BIND" tutorial, or do you want this person to learn all about DNSSEC, auto key signing, etc.? What DNS servers are you running? John On 06/11/2013 01:30 PM, Peter P Morrissey wrote: > Anyone aware of any good DNS training that occurs somewhere besides > Canada?

Good question. Bind 9.x advanced is what I am primarily interest in. Pete ________________________________________
Sorry for the slow reply, Pete. I'm not sure what you define as "Bind 9.x advanced," but most of my knowledge has come from webinars, the bind-users list, conference talks, and three books: - DNS and BIND (Albitz and Liu - everyone's read this one) - Pro DNS and BIND (Aitcheson - maybe not as familiar, but more recent and quite good) - Alternative DNS Servers (Mens - starting to age a bit, but good info in there) Definitely buy these if you haven't already. Doing a quick search for "BIND training" gave me a bunch of overseas stuff, but the following from Men and Mice might be what you're looking for: http://www.menandmice.com/training/training-schedule.aspx Looks like there's some stuff in NYC and DC later this year. They also do on-site training. Men and Mice is a commercial IPAM vendor, but their training sounds like it uses vanilla BIND. No idea how good/bad it is. You might also talk with Shumon Huque from UPenn. He's given DNS talks at both LISA and LOPSA-East in the past year, so he might be willing to put something together. Sorry I can't say "use this vendor--they're awesome and in the US," but hopefully this gives you some more to go on. John On 06/11/2013 02:23 PM, Peter P Morrissey wrote: > Good question.
