DNS Tutorial Question 3.
Hello everyone,

I have spent hours trying to figure this out but don't think am going anywhere near.

So the Question is:

Create a brand new forward zone for domain "" in the named configuration directory /var/named/. For this you should create a new zone file called "" (copying named.localhost to might be a good starting point). Add this file, along with its zone information, to the configuration file /etc/named.conf.

This zone should give: -> IP address -> IP address
Hints. It is a master type. The zone file must be readable by the user "named". Remember to use "service named reload" when you change the config file.

Now the things which I have to check are as follows: has A record for .20 PASSED has A record for .30 PASSED has ZONE record in named.conf PASSED
Check resolves FAILED
Check resolves FAILED

A. "named.conf" file:

options {
directory "/var/named";
dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
allow-query { localhost; };
recursion yes;

dnssec-enable yes;
dnssec-validation yes;
dnssec-lookaside auto;

/* Path to ISC DLV key */
bindkeys-file "/etc/named.iscdlv.key";

managed-keys-directory "/var/named/dynamic";

logging {
channel default_debug {
file "data/";
severity dynamic;

zone "" IN {
type master;
file "";

include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";
include "/etc/named.root.key";

B. "" file:

@ IN SOA @ rname.invalid. (
0 ; serial
1D ; refresh
1H ; retry
1W ; expire
3H ) ; minimum

NS @ A A

This where I'm not able to get it right. Dunno what should I do. Can anyone please help as soon as possible.
