Question from a noob into BIND / DNS ^^'
I come here with some questions about DNS because I use BIND since some month now, and if that's work fine with some domain name, each time I need to do change, I have many many problems
So first, my "network" configuration :
I have some dedicated servers, the www1 one is the root and host websites, email server and DNS server.
www2, www3, www4, and other are hosting other services.
And finally I manage BIND by webmin.
So here is some questions ^^ :
- CHMOD right does impact in the way of how work BIND ?
I mean CHMOD right into my zone files, and /etc/bind folder
- RNDC drive me crazy ><
Each time I restart BIND (using webmin), and I try to "apply zone" (using webmin too), that's result me by this error =>
Commande NDC impossible : rndc: 'reload' failed: bad owner name (check-names)
And when I have this error, I must rewrite the zone with many information wiped, then I apply and that work, and so I rewrite again the zone with full informations and the apply finally work ...
- I saw it was possible to include an external file to the zone file, so I tried by adding this line =>
But I'm not sure that's fine, because that's don't worked really fine ... :/
Perhaps I must put this line at the bottom of my zone file ? after the line
"* IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" ? or doesn't matter ?
- When I add a subdomain to my zone file, I must use a "dig" command to find something
So thanks for any help, since I'm far to understand all about how work BIND ^^'
