4. /var/named/root.cache

If your DNS is deferring requests to another DNS, the file /var/named/root.cache is not needed!


This file provides the bootstrap knowledge required to resolve names in other domains. Without this file, your DNS will simply think that nothing else exists except the domains it serves. It won't look further.

This is why Linuxconf always try to add it to your DNS configuration!
