Subject [jira] Created: (DIRDNS-23) Refactor apachedns.schema
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2005 14:29:44 GMT
Refactor apachedns.schema

         Key: DIRDNS-23
     Project: Directory DNS
        Type: Improvement
    Versions: 0.3    
    Reporter: Enrique Rodriguez
 Assigned to: Enrique Rodriguez 
     Fix For: 0.3

Based on new understanding of RFC's 1034 and 1035 we can refactor the apache DNS schema to
eliminate a number of unnecessary attributes and make zone configuration more intuitive:
o  remove name.  name is implicit in the relative DN (RFC 2247).
o  remove type.  type is implicit in the objectClass.
o  move class from MUST on abstract record type to MAY on SOA.  class will be determined from
the SOA or default to IN (RFC 1035 5.2).
o  change TTL to MAY.  TTL will default to SOA MINIMUM.
o  add MAY 'description'.
o  separate OC's for apacheDnsReferralNameServer and apacheDnsNameServerRecord.  The meaning
of these name servers is fundamentally different.
o  separate OC's for apacheDnsReferralAddress and apacheDnsAddressRecord.  The meaning of
these address records is fundamentally different.
o  use domainComponents, CS.UCL.AC.UK maps to DC=CS,DC=UCL,DC=AC,DC=UK, according to RFC 2247.
o  Note:  ldap-common NamespaceTools.inferLdapName( ) will return a DN for a zone.
