Hi Maxim,

Thanks for responding. I agree with your recommendation.  I guess a direct
upgrade from 1.12  to 1.16 (free community version) is possible and
shouldn't break it.

I'm preferring 1.61 since it's the latest stable version.  Beside the
upgrade, do you recommend any performance tuning should be done?


FYI - This is the error I see in the "dns.log" occurring frequently.
