How do I know if DNS is installed in the version/installation of SCO
that I have on our SCO 5.0.6 server? We would like to configure a DNS
server in our office.

Thanks

Assuming you are running 5.0.6 Enterprise and not Host, look through
the README in /etc/named.d for information on how to configure your
SCO system as a nameserver. You can also get information from SCO's
Knowledge Base:

Thanks Scott. I've got the readme, and named.conf, and named.pri (the
example file for a primary name server) but it's still Geek to me.

Thanks for your help, though.

Scott:

All I need to do is to setup our server as the primary zone(I
think...we're still using our ISP to catch our internet email); do I
need to create the file ourdomain.com or does SCO create it? I see that
I use file named.hosts for A records and the like; do I need to make an
entry for ourdomain.com in named.hosts?

Thanks

zone "ourdomain.com" {
type master; // what used to be called "primary"
file "ourdomain.com";
check-names fail;
allow-update { none; };
allow-transfer { any; };
allow-query { any; };
// notify yes; // send NOTIFY messages for this
// zone? The global option is used
// if "notify" is not specified
// here.
also-notify { }; // don't notify any nameservers other
// than those on the NS list for this
// zone
