Unhappy Authoritative DNS servers not resolving query


Hello Everybody,

I am new in DNS and I am trying configure authoritative servers’ internal use (home). After doing RND reached half road of my destination but facing a problem in remain configurations.
I have installed rhel5 on VMware workstation with NAT configuration and no internet for these virtual systems (DNS).

DNS configuration is:
Quote:
Server name: test.example.com
IP: 192.168.62.5
/etc/named.conf configuration is:

Quote:
options
{
listen-on port 53 { any; };
};

view "localhost_resolver"
{
match-clients { localhost; };
recursion yes;
include "/etc/named.root.hints";
};
view "internal"
{
match-clients { localnets; };
match-destinations { localnets; };
recursion yes;
include "/etc/named.root.hints";
zone "example.com" {
type master;
# allow-update { key ddns_key; };
file "test.example.internal.db";
};
view "external"
{
====Not Configuard====================
The file test.example.internal.db contains:

Quote:
$TTL 600
@ IN SOA test.example.com. root.test.example.com. (
20121 ; Serial
3H ; Refresh
15M ; Retry
1W ; Expire
10 ) ; Minimum
IN NS test.example.com.
IN MX 10 test.example.com.

test.example.com IN A 192.168.62.5
vxvm.example.com IN A 192.168.62.6
DNS resolve.conf file is:

Quote:
search localdomain
#nameserver 127.0.0.1
Client resolve.conf file is:
Quote:
search test.example.com
nameserver 192.168.62.5

PROBLEM
The dns server itself not able to resolve the query.
Error:
Quote:

# dig test.example.com

; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-16.P1.el5 <<>> test.example.com
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Client resolving the query but not giving any answer on it.
Output:
Quote:
# dig vxvm.example.com

; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> vxvm.example.com
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:

;; WHEN: Wed Dec 12 20:30:08 2012
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 80
I tried to solve this issue by myself but no success . Even tried search and read many articles and solution suggested on similar issue but doesn't helped me more.

Finally I decided to get help from you guys and Expert advice in that.

Please! Please! Help me in this..

Thanks in Advance…..

Hi,

You miss the trailing dots in both the hostnames in the A RRs,
Code:
$TTL 600
@ IN SOA test.example.com. root.test.example.com. (
20121 ; Serial
3H ; Refresh
15M ; Retry
1W ; Expire
10 ) ; Minimum
IN NS test.example.com.
IN MX 10 test.example.com.

test.example.com. IN A 192.168.62.5
vxvm.example.com. IN A 192.168.62.6
Increase the serial and reload bind

Merry Christmas

<-snip->
You get a SERVFAIL, because you don't have that zone defined specifically for the localhost_resolver view. Delete that view, as localhost is already included in localnets, so it can use the internal view.
BTW the match-destinations is superfluous, so you can omit it too.

Regards
