DNS or Bind problems
Hi i got a Domain that is suppose to direst to my server but when ever i nslookup the domain it gives me this :SERVFAILED
but when i put in the ip of the server it works
i have the following Setup on Trustix 2.2
and php 5.0.2
i tried it with webmin but as soon as i open a new zone the named.conf wont work
i wish if i can get help thanx
Either named isn't running, it isn't serving the domain correctly, or you don't have your registrar pointing to the right DNS server.
Check to see if named is running:
To see if it is loading the zone correctly, you need to look in the messages file. I don't know where this is on Trustix.
ps auxww | grep named
To see if you have your registrar setup right, run a whois on the domain, and do a dig @ns.domain.com where ns.domain.com is listed in the registrar as the primary nameservers.
