a quick question regarding DNS


Hi group, I have a quick question regarding DNS. My FQDN is veracruz.paunchy.net I can sit a my windows box type any one of my domains and sure enough the site comes-up ! but, nslookup is failing, which is a bit irritating when certain things I’m doing rely on nslookup

I have enclosed my main paunchy.net zone file and the error message which is continually appearing



@ IN SOA ns.paunchy.net. hostmaster.paunchy.net. (
2002101801 ; Serial
7200 ; Refresh - 2 hours
3600 ; Retry - 1 hour
604800 ; Expire - 12 hours
3600 ) ; Minimum - 1 hour

NS ns

IN NS ns.paunchy.net.

IN A 192.168.0.1

IN MX 10 mail.paunchy.net.


Error log:


Nov 15 15:35:20 veracruz named[430]: sysquery: findns error (NXDOMAIN) on ns.paunchy.net?

Hope somebody can help

Thanks

Just to let you all know, I have made a posting on linuxnewbie.org regarding the same posting. I was asked if I had a ‘reverse zone’ ECT. The answer is ‘yes’ I have a fully working DNS.

i have had it working b4, i lost all my zones when i done a rebuild, i cant remember what the main zone was

regarding my error

(NXDOMAIN) = a "Name Error"

Name errors (NXDOMAIN) are indicated by the presence of "Name Error" in the RCODE field. In this case the domain referred to by the QNAME does not exist

not sure about this ? its correct, but, as 2 what i add to paunchy.zone, god knows

fairly new 2 this dns stuff, have got a shed load of books, at first glance I’ve done it right, I guess it must be mostly right because I can sit at my windows box and browse all 12 IP based virtual domains. Buy there name i.e. http://paunchy.net and http://sfahey.com ect..ect…

on that note ! when I do an nslookup from windows with the ‘cyber kit’ app I get a result

have you checked that the name server addresses are listed as nameservers and that paunchy.net is listed as a search domain in /etc/reslov.conf
