AXFR notifies?
 
I am forced to use AXFR to notify an external DNS server.

I inscribed the external DNS server's IP in the field "allow zone transfers", but somehow the transfers don't seem successful, because the external server never heard about my domain.

I check mydns.conf, and it says AXFR-allow: yes

did I miss something?

if I do
#mydns -d -v

I get:
Quote:

AXFR is enabled
TCP ports are enabled
DNS update is not enabled
DNS notify is not enabled
DNS IXFR is not enabled
optional column "xfer" column found in "dns soa" table
ipv4_listerner: bind on sicket 6 (TCO) failed: 127.0.0.1+53: address already in use

my previous post is dumb.

Obviously, I have to stop the service before running it.

After stopping mydns and doing mydns -d -v again, it showed no errors: "listening on 4 addresses"


How can I check if the notifies are really sent to the other server or not?

any idea how I could diagnose the problem?

You can try to simulate a zone transfer with the dig command.

There also seems to be a bug in some mydns versions regarding zone transfers, for details please take a look here:

thanks!

modifying a query in mydns-ng shouldn't be difficult.

where is that file?


alternatively, I could also modify DNS_SOA column attributes and ISPConfig to set that active=1 value

I can't find the program... is that in a compiled file?
How to fix that?

The last intervention in the Sourceforge bug tracker is from march... *shudder*

Should I get another DNS server to work with ISPConfig 3?

err... in this thread they say that switching to mydns-ng is a solution?

But I think I use mydns-ng... How do I check which version I use?

manarak 21st May 2009 09:22

ok, I manually changed the value in the DNS_SOA table to 1.

But still no joy, there are no notifies going out.

How can I trigger a notify manually?

till 21st May 2009 09:28

Try to restart mydns.
