    registering a new machine with our nameservers


    I am setting up a new machine on a small network in the office. I have given it a hostname and I have given it CNAME and A record entries in our primary nameserver's zone files..

    but if I now try to ping it, (ping lon-ccons-1.mydomain.net)

    I get an unknow host error

    What do I need to do on the nameserver so that these changes will take effect?

    I'm a bit lost here !

    thanks
