Question DNS Problem


Hello,

I am currently trying to get the domain "cruiselinefans.com" working on a new server. The name servers ns1/ns2.cruiselinefans.com have been registered and are working however apparently the A record is missing on the new server. I just changed the name servers back to the old server to prevent any further downtime.

I just changed the NS back to the old server to prevent any further downtime.

Here's my setup on the new server:

/etc/hosts

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
67.215.235.206 server.cruiselinefans.com server
127.0.0.1 server.cruiselinefans.com server localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6



/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf - end of file

<VirtualHost server.cruiselinefans.com:80>
ServerAdmin xxx@gmail.com
DocumentRoot /www
ServerName 67.215.235.206
ErrorLog logs/error_log
CustomLog logs/access_log common
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost cruiselinefans.com:80>
ServerAdmin xxx@gmail.com
DocumentRoot /www
ServerName 67.215.235.206
ErrorLog logs/error_log
CustomLog logs/access_log common
</VirtualHost>

Include conf/vhosts/*.conf


/var/named/cruiselinefans.com.db

$TTL 14400
@ 86400 IN SOA ns1.cruiselinefans.com.

};

I was told that the "cruiselinefans.com. IN A 127.0.0.1 " was creating a round-robin issue. I removed it and restarted named however the issue remains.

I cant not definitely say that this is your problem, however it is something I have experienced in the past. You need glue records on your domain to provide static dns resolution for the name server addresses, so that ns1/ns2. resolve even if your actual server is not functional or your records propogated. Most DNS registrars provide this facility in their control panel.

Hope this helps
