Hi,
I noticed that the serial number generated by Webmin when creating a new zone is not based on date but on 32bits something like that according to the RFC.
Personnaly I understand more a date based serial number on the config file of DNS Zone.

what i'm reporting is not really a bug, but I think that most people a re using a date based serials.
If we could have an option on webmin to choose between 32bits generated serial or date, it will be welcomed :)

Have a nice day :)

    Actually, you can choose to have a serial number based on the date already - just go to the BIND DNS Server module, click on Module Config, go to Zone File Options, and change the "Serial number style" setting.
