I have done that.its just shows configurations.Now I am clueless about only one file -localdomain.zone, what it is used for?
I copied localdomain.zone as forward.zone as forward zone file and named.local as reverse.zone for as reverse zone file.added all the RR.I now have a working DNS.
I tried removing localdomain.zone but it throws error on restarting named.what I have learned so far is ,we need following file for DNS:
1.A forward mapping zone file ---->forward.zone (as i created)
2.A reverse mapping zone file ---->reverse.zone (-----"------)
3.A root.server file ------------->named.ca (provided by the pkg)
4.forward mapping file for local host --->localhost.zone (provided by the pkg)
5.reverse mapping file for localhost ---->named.local (provided by the pkg)
so i would appreciate if someone tell me what localdomain.zone does?
Thanks & regards
