Mail-server conflicts with dns-server in LDAP, DNS-queries logging size unit



Problem description

This update fixes the case when DNS server configuration is stored into the LDAP and mail server writes into the zone of the DNS server and the next configuration of this dns-zone will fail. Until now, the next configuration of the DNS zone will not fail.
Another bug was in the configuration of logging. DNS server setting allowed to set the log size in MBytes. But the values was stored in configuration without any unit. It means that the size was in Bytes instead of MBytes. Now YaST stores the unit in MBytes.
