Donavan wanted a new dns zone, v-adapt.images.alaska.edu. I created it in netreg patterned after the net.images.alaska.edu zone. Updated the dns config on edgar and pluto, no problem (barring /usr/sbin/bind vs /usr/local/sbin/bind on edgar). Manually added an A record for v-adapt.images.alaska.edu to Kasatochi's ip, 17.108. CNAMEs don't appear to be possible, at least not without more research, for mapping a machine to a bare zone name.
