My server is a Ubuntu, and I have installed webmin/virtualmin and I´m trying to create my NSRecord ns1 and ns2.
I run this command:
dig @localhost mydomain.info
; DiG 9.7.3 @localhost mydomain.info
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; HEADER opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 64570

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;mydomain.info. IN A
;; ANSWER SECTION:
mydomain.info. 38400 IN A 10.28.166.120
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
mydomain.info. 38400 IN NS ns1.mydomain.info.
;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
ns1.mydomain.info. 38400 IN A 10.28.166.120
But 10.28.166.120 it´s my local IP, I try to find any information on /var/log/syslog about Bind and I didn´t see anything.
In Firewall I configured the ports like this:
Incoming open ports:
Outgoing open ports:
So, know I put my complete dns record:
@ IN SOA ns1.mydomain.info. root.ns1.mydomain.info. (
@ IN NS ns1.mydomain.info.
mydomain.info. IN A 10.28.166.120
www.mydomain.info. IN A 10.28.166.120
ftp.mydomain.info. IN A 10.28.166.120
m.mydomain.info. IN A 10.28.166.120
ns1.mydomain.info. IN A 999.999.999.999
localhost.mydomain.info. IN A 127.0.0.1
webmail.mydomain.info. IN A 10.28.166.120
admin.mydomain.info. IN A 10.28.166.120
mydomain.info. IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx a:mydomain.info ip4:10.28.166.120 ?all"
999.999.999.999 = my external IP
I´m tried post some questions like this and anyone help on other forums. If anyone don´t undestand something I will try to explain.
BIND runs as
named, so that is what you should look for in the logs. (Though nothing is actually wrong with this setup, so I doubt there would be anything in the logs).
I'm not sure how you've set up the records in your zone, but each
NS record points to an
A record. The NS record looks fine, but the A record is wrong. The other NS record and/or its corresponding A record are missing. You will have to change the A record for
ns1.mydomain.info. to your external address. There is no simple way to use both an internal and external IP for a single machine (for a complicated way, see split-horizon views).
