Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70909
unclear error messages
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
I added a forward master zone and specified a Primary Nameserver (SOA).
When I click OK, it gives me the error message:
Forward zone `forward2.example.com' must list at least one name server.
Use "Add ..." button to add name server.
It is unclear which forward2.example.com it means. Does it mean the Master
Zone or the Record? I think it means the Record, but it should clearly
When I try to add a reverse master zone, it says that a primary nameserver is
not defined. There are 2 name server widgets on the screen -- one for the
primary nameserver (SOA) and one nameservers frame. The error messages should be
clearer. After adding a SOA, it still says I need a nameserver but it gives me a
little better directions. It could be clearer.
Two changes to make this clearer. The original message now adds the (SOA) to it.
The second message specifies the record.
Fixed in 1.7.1-10
Fix confirmed with redhat-config-bind-1.7.1-13.
