cPanel 9 A-Entry Help

I am using Cpanel 9 on Redhat 9 and all the A Entry information is incorrect and I do not know where to edit this information and make it accurate...When I try to add the A-Entries for both of my name servers I get the following problems :

Adding an A entry for nameserver
Found your nameserver to be:
Found your domain name to be: .com
Found your nameserver name to be: ns2.domain
Found your nameserver ip to be: xx.xx.xx.xx

The domain name isnt showing up fully, only the domain extension, and the Nameserver name is also wrong without the full extention. Where do I change the nameserver infromation and domain name for the A-Entry info? I read the Cpanel FAQ and it says "Click on the Add the entry button if the displayed information looks correct." Well what about if it is incorrect? The FAQ doesnt say how to alter it if it is wrong.

I need to rid of these errors and get my name servers resolving correctly. Your prompt assistance with this is appreciated.

if this utility interacts parrallel to the tcp wrapper host access control files and parrallell with the eth interface, I would have to guess to add a computer name into the /etc/hosts file.

Though Ive never used cPanel, you may be needing to add something in the /etc/resolv.conf file.
I dont' know, this is only a shot in the dark.

I don't see how an application would only report half a name if it in fact querying your servers instead of information on the local machine.

On the other hand, like I said, if it interacts with the local machine settings, I would check the files named above.

Thanks for the tip, was infact the resolv.conf file that was missing the valid information for the nameservers. CPanel being whack basically, these values apparently arent ment to be edited so CPanel Support reckons but on intial setup it did infact get it wrong... Thanks for the heads up none the less.
