BIND 9 not serving up local information
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or bind is acting weird, but
bind-9.1.0-0.b2.1 in beta2 isn't returning information on my local
domains. I've got this in my named.conf file:
And the file db.lunenburg.org has proper zone information (copied from a
working bind8 server). But when I query bind for information in the
lunenburg.org zone, it spits back something like:
> server 192.168.0.1
Default server: 192.168.0.1
** server can't find dundas.lunenburg.org.: SERVFAIL
The db.lunenburg.org file looks like:
@ IN SOA courthouse.lunenburg.org. minter.lunenburg.org.
10800; Refresh after 3 hours
3600; Retry after 1 hour
604800; Expire after 1 week
86400 ); Minimum TTL of 1 day
IN NS courthouse.lunenburg.org.
www IN A 188.8.131.52
mail IN CNAME www.lunenburg.org.
courthouse IN A 192.168.0.1
kenbridge IN A 192.168.0.2
victoria IN A 192.168.0.3
dundas IN A 192.168.0.4
/var/log/messages only says:
Jan 24 17:48:19 courthouse named: dns_master_load:
db.lunenburg.org:1: no TTL specified
Jan 24 17:48:19 courthouse named: dns_zone_load: zone
lunenburg.org/IN: loading master file db.lunenburg.org: no ttl
Your zone file is not RFC compliant. Prior versions warned you about this, the
current version doesn't accept the file.
It`s just what syslog says: no TTL specified.
The easiest way to specify a TTL is adding it right after the "@" in the first
