PowerDNS Updated to 3.1, AXFR Support Update

We’ve updated our PowerDNS Authoritative Server installations to version 3.1, the current release version. PowerDNS is used to drive our Primary DNS service offering.

The method in which AXFR ACLs were handled in pre-3.1 versions (separate database table) is now different in 3.1 (using the existing domain metadata table), so unfortunately that feature was delayed again. However at this point we don’t believe it’s going to change away from being part of the metadata, so we’re moving forward with this method to a front end in the account control center.
