Unhappy DNS Configuration


I have a domain like mydomain.com and a virtual host domain as something.mydomain.com with an IP.

My objective is that I want to send all mails directed to *.something.mydomain.com (eg xxx@yahoo.com.aa.bb.something.mydomain.com)
to a user say root in something.mydomain.com. I mean all mails coming in *.something.mydomain.com should be redirected to root@something.mydomain.com.

something.mydomain.com is also my mail server.

I am using Red Hat Linux with Bind .

I have created zone file like mydomain.com.zone in /var/named with
an wildcard Mx Entry and A record. and also pointed this file in named.conf.

But it is not working .

My zone file looks like this :


@ IN SOA ns1.mydomain.com. root.mydomain.com. (
2003080801 ; serial
28800 ; refresh
14400 ; retry
3600000 ; expire
86400 ; default_ttl
)
;name server
IN NS ns1.mydomain.com.
IN NS ns2.mydomain.com.

;mail server

*.mydomain.com. IN MX 10 someone.mydomain.com

;public server

ns1.mydomain.com IN A ip- of- primary name- server
ns2.mydomain.com IN A ip- of- slave name- server
www IN A ip- of- mail- server
ftp IN A ip- of- mail- server
mail IN A ip- of- mail- server

;end


# Now I have written in named.conf file
zone "vpscenter.com"{
type master;
file "vpscenter.com.zone";
allow-transfer { ip- of- slave name- server

};

I have started named dameon.
but I am not getting the desired result.

when I sending any mail at say root@xx.yy.something.mydomain.com

It is showing Host unknown.

am I missing something?

Please advice me with detailed steps, all necessary configurations and sample code ( zone files etc) ASAP.

Thanks

Re: DNS Configuration

In the zone file for your virtual domain, make it similar to this:

############

$TTL 86400
$ORIGIN com.
myvirtualdomain IN SOA ns.myvirtualdomain.com. root.ns.myvirtualdomain.com. (
2003013118 ; Serial
7200 ; Refresh
1800 ; Retry
3600000 ; Expire
7200 ; Minimum
)
; Nameservers
NS ns.myprimarynameserver.com.
NS ns.mysecondarynameserver.com.

;
; Mail Exchanger MX
MX 10 mail.myvirtualdomain.com.
A 203.111.122.23
;
$ORIGIN myvirtualdomain.com.
ns A 203.111.122.23
mail CNAME ns.myvirtualdomain.com.
www CNAME ns.myvirtualdomain.com.
pop3 CNAME mail.myvirtualdomain.com.
smtp CNAME mail.myvirtualdomain.com.
ftp CNAME mail.myvirtualdomain.com.

#############
Note: assume that the IP for your virtual domain is 203.111.122.23
#############


In the /etc/mail/virtusertable add this line:

$1@myvirtualdomain.com root@myvirtualdomain.com

so that all mails will go to root mailbox.


Let me know if this works.

The reason it's not working is because you don't authoritative rights to the domain "vpscenter.com" Obviously, only VPS Center has that authority.

But I believe what you're trying to do is setup a "catch-all" email box. If you are, then you definitely don't have to go through all this. You just need to update the "/etc/aliases" file and make the user "root" go to your designated catch-all email box.

Or, if you're using the HSPComplete control panel, you can do it through there under the "mailboxes" button in the "Site" or "System" tab.

Hope this helps! :-)
