First, let me say I'm pretty new to SLES.

I've got a bunch of hosts to add to my DNS server and it looks like it's going to be pretty tedious adding them all using YaST, so I was wanting to edit a few files instead.

Does anyone have simple instructions to add hosts to my local domain this way?

It looks like it might be as simple as updating /var/lib/named/master/<domain>, but I was sort of expecting maybe a reverse lookup file and maybe some mx records somewhere (although these aren't important as we don't have mail).

I've worked it ot for DHCP - just edit /etc/dhcpd.conf and do a 'rcdhcpd start'.

Oh, it's SLES 11 BTW.

Many thanks,
