treehouse uses sunjammer (ns2) and it works fine, but IMO we should change that. It's always a good idea to keep those functions (content servers and recursive resolvers) separated. It's easy enough for a "trusted" client to "accidently" poison your cache (e.g. mail server doing lookups on the HELO/EHLO host name).

Current status:

sunjammer		already done (dogi?)
treehouse		already done (dogi?)
lightwave		already done (dogi?)
idea			unknown (console not working)
mapspress		unknown (needs root password)
ole			unknown (needs root password)
zatoichi		unknown (needs root password)
launchpad		unknown (needs root password)
monitoring		unknown (needs root password)
pootle			unknown (needs root password)
subuntu			done
sharing			unknown (needs root password)
aslo-web		unknown (needs root password)
rt			unknown (needs root password)
schooltool		unknown (needs root password)

Besides configuring all VMs to allow root login without password on the console (that's only accessible to root on the host anyway, so no risk) it's probably a good idea to set up a recursive resolver (e.g. dnscache ;) ) on housetree, treehouse and bender.
