New BIND9 installation


I have setup a new DNS server running BIND and ran successfully with no errors. However for some reason it would not resolve internal names.

I have setup zones et al needed to make this work but wondering on what have I missed....

I have tested this with a windows xp machine that I have assigned a static IP and DNS on using the parameters of this new DNS server. The test xp worked fine and can browse the internet/extranet - however it would not resolve names internally.

I also looked at the logs but really didnt show any signs of dns misbehaving...

Anything else I need to do to correct this?

Cheers!

DB


Here's my new named.conf file:

options {
directory "/etc/bind";
dump-file "/etc/bind/data/cache_dump.db";
statistics-file "/etc/bind/data/named_stats.txt";
allow-transfer { 10.10.1.4; };
/*
*/
// query-source address * port 53;
};
//
// a caching only nameserver config
//
controls {
inet 127.0.0.1 port 953
allow { 127.0.0.1; } keys { rndckey; };
};

To add:

When I do an nslookup in the xp machine, it states that the server cant find the specified server in question: "Server Failed."

Also when I do an nslookup in the server itself, it states:

Got Servfail reply from 10.10.1.3, trying next dns server.
Server: 10.10.1.4
Address: 10.10.1.4#53
Name: dnsslv.csaa.com
Address: 10.10.1.4

Please help...

Thank you!
