Upgrade to BIND version 9.14 in Centos 6.10

Post by tonyvu » 2019/05/21 13:05:03

Can any one help on this? I would like to upgrade BIND to version 9.14.2 in Centos 6.10. However whenever i type yum update bind i always got No Packages marked for Update. I am using bind-9.8.2-0.68.rc1.el6.i686

We ship bind-9.8.2-0.68.rc1.el6_10.1.x86_64 on CentOS 6.10 and no-one reputable will ship replacement packages. Security fixes are backported to the CentOS copy by Redhat as per https://access.redhat.com/security/updates/backporting/ which gives details for information on backporting of security fixes and features in CentOS and RHEL. Additionally https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2074 may also be of use.

If you are attempting to update to fix security bugs then please consult the rpm changelog for the current version and see if the fix is already in place.

CentOS 6 has less than 18 months of life left in it. You might want to consider moving to CentOS 7 which has 5 years or so left. It ships bind-9.9.4-73.el7_6.x86_64
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
