RE: BIND help
The file below is totally hosed. How many systems do you have and how many IP
addresses do you have? I see only one A record so assuming that you only have
one system on your net (but that reference to paul.3dillusion.com throws me)
You can START with something like this:
@ IN SOA ns.3dillusion.com hostmaster.3dillusion.com (
97110701 ; serial yymmddxx
10800 ; refresh 3 hours
3600 ; retry 1 hour
3600000 ; expire 1000 hours
86400 ) ; minimum 24 hours
IN A 22.214.171.124
IN MX 100 mail.3dillusion.com.
IN HINFO I386 LINUX
IN NS 3dillusion.com.
ftp IN CNAME 3dillusion.com.
mail IN CNAME 3dillusion.com.
www IN CNAME 3dillusion.com.
3dillusion IN CNAME 3dillusion.com.
paul IN CNAME 3dillusion.com.
What this does is create ONE system (note only one A record) with a bunch of
aliases (CNAME) records pointing to it. If you add another system (say
ftp.3dillusion.com) you REMOVE the CNAME record, ADD an A record like this:
ftp IN A ???.???.???.???
Where you replace the ???.???.???.??? with the real IP address.
WHat your file below does is create a subdomain of ns and creates a bunch of
alises that point to systems that have no A records ... which means that they
Every name must have EITHER an A record that points to an IP address OR a CNAME
record that points to another name that has an A record.
