Bind doesn't show it's zones?


Hi,

I've installed bind on debian sarge, and added a few zones with the .lan tld. So far so good, however, when I do an nslookup,I get:
Quote:
multimedia:/etc/bind# nslookup dolf.lan
Server: 127.0.0.1
Address: 127.0.0.1#53

** server can't find dolf.lan: SERVFAIL

multimedia:/etc/bind#
In /etc/bind/named.conf I added:
Code:
zone "dolf.lan" IN {
        type master;
        file "db.dolf.lan";
        allow-update { none; };
};
And it says in /etc/bind/db.dolf.lan:
Code:
$TTL    864
$ORIGIN dolf.lan.
@       IN      SOA     ns1.dolf.lan.   info.dolf.lan. (
                2007030201      ; serial
                3600            ; refresh
                3600            ; retry
                2419200         ; expiry
                604800 )        ; minimum
@       IN      NS      ns1.dolf.lan.
        IN      MX      10      mail.dolf.lan.
        IN      A       10.0.2.2
ns1     IN      A       10.0.0.3
mail    IN      A       10.0.0.3
www     IN      A       10.0.2.2
Perhaps someone sees what I am doing wrong here, I do not see it, but that may have to do with my lack of experience when it comes to BIND.

Regards,

Freakin'me

edit; correct several typos in db.dolf.lan, still not working...

To resolve your zone change the above to:
Code:
        IN      NS      ns1.dolf.lan.
        IN      MX      10      mail.dolf.lan.
@       IN      A       10.0.2.2
Instead of the origin "@" you can use the whole zone name: dolf.lan. (mind the dot at the end)

Thanks for your reply.

A friend of me told me that I should take a look in syslog and deamon.log for Bind logs there by default, which I didn't know.

Once I opened syslog, it was all pretty clear, Bind couldn't find the zonefiles I added (unfortunately it didn't give any error/warning when I restarted it), after using absolute paths instead of relative ones, it all went smoothly...

Thanks for your help though,

Freakin'me
