  1. Thanks, it does work for SL 1.6.2 server.

    Get rid of the DNS module on the AdminServer package and use Webmin for BIND administration. It allows to use views and other functionality unavailable from the crappy Apple DNS Admin Server plugin.
    And by getting rid of the DNS plugin you are safe from configuration files corruption done by the Apple module.
