Yeah, I knew that ;-)

I thought I had configured the client not to do this. But looking now I 
don't see such an option. On the other hand, I can't see an option in 
named.conf that would allow that. Isn't there a way to tell named to just 
ignore/not accept these updates? From the error messages it looks like it 
accepts them, but they fail afterwards either because of missing permissions 
to the file or rndc or so. Or is there an dhcp option that would tell the 
client to stop this? I have "ignore client-updates;" but that obviously is 
an option for dhcpd only.
