DNS database files question
Hi all. I try to set up a hypothetical domain in a single linux (Red Hat 8)machine. I just want to see if I can resolve my machine's IP address.
The problem is that after setting up BIND 9.2.1 and all the required files
(/etc/resolv.conf...../etc/hosts....../etc/named.conf.....and the database files) I cannot have my ONLY hostname resolved. I fear that it has to do something with the serial numbers in SOA records. I have them all 1s.
It says : server can't find "hostname" : SERVFAIL
Is there somenoe who knows why this simplest DNS set up does not work?
I would appreciate any help. Thanks
