Ok, awhile back I became fascinated with running the whole show myself and so I set up my own DNS, SMTP, POP3, HTTP, and FTP servers on a Windows 2000 machine. In order to do this, I had to aquire a business account, have new equiptment installed, study my tail off for months, do a LOT of reading, asking questions, experimenting, installing and learning to use various servers, setting up Perl, Sendmail, MySQL, reconfiguring my entire 380+ MB site, adding scripts, etc. A major drain on my tired old brain for sure but definately an invaluable learning experience!.
Anyway, it all paid off and I ended up with a sizzling system and everything worked beyond my wildest dreams and has been doing so for a month now. Ahhh the feeling of total independance:-).
Ok, so fast forward to the present and here I am trying to do the same thing all over again - only this time, with Fedora Linux core 1#. While I'm certainly no stranger to Linux and I know my way around it very well, I have NEVER used it as a server before. The first thing I did was to download Webmin and Usermin, install, update, activate and configure all of the services I needed and then set about using the information from my Posadis zone file to create a master file for BIND from within Webmin. It looks like I did a fairly decent job and got everything right accept that when I go to http://www.dnsreport.com
and type in my domain, I get a message that say's...
ERROR: You have one or more lame nameservers. These are nameservers that do NOT answer authoritatively for your domain. This is bad; for example, these nameservers may never get updated. The following nameservers are lame:
Now I saw something in Webmin about downloading a list of root servers but I'm not sure if this is something I need to do in order to get this working. The other thing is that while I AM familiar with the format/syntax of the Posadis DNS server, I am not all all familiar with the BIND one that comes with Fedora Linux. If I post my Posadis Master file here, would someone please be kind enought to more or less convert it for me so it is acceptible to BIND?. I'd sure appreciate it a LOT!!:-).
