Im trying to setup DNS using the graphicial redhat-config-bind uti
1. Forward Master Zone
domain name = home.com
Primary Nameserver (SOA) should read @ but is blank and wont accept @
so Ive put dell.home.com. which is the FQDN
Add record into which goes the host name (toshiba) and the ip addr
(192.168.0.100) This appears under home.com as toshiba -> 192.168.0.100
2. Reverse Master Zone
1st three octets 192.168.0 again the Primary Nameserver (SOA) is blank
and wont accept @ so in there I put dell.home.com. this appears as
.00.168.192.in-addr.arpa with dell.home.com. served by home.com beneath it
3. Nameserver panel
Domain name = home.com Primary Nameserver (SOA) = dell.home.com.
This configuration will not sae there is an error message Zone
'home.com' must list at least one nameserver recod. Use the "add
record" button to add a name server which when I click on it shows
Domain name = home.com and served by dell.home.com. which is what I
would have expected.
I know there is the issue of the @ being missing and also the trailing
"." might be an issue in places but I think ive recorded above when and
when I ve put it in.
Any suggestions as to what im doing wrong?
