DNS Issue with ISPConfig 3
 
Hi all,

I managed to install ISPConfig 3 for the first time, and its also my first time to use ISPConfig, my dns(chrooted bind) is already configured, i can dig / nslookup records,.. but one thing I dont really get is that when i Add a Zone in ISPConfig Web Gui, it will be created in /var/named/chroot/var/named and the format of the file is eg: pri.mobile.domain.com, so it automatically created with a prefix of pri.,, can i configure ISPConfig not to add pri as prefix to my newly created zone file?... another thing after i create a zone file, do we need to manually include it to /etc/named.conf? ex: include /var/named/mobile.domain.com.


Thanks in advance, :)

No. ISPConfig will create the files with prefix and will also use this prefix in the named-conf-local file which conatains the zones and gets included in named.conf

No. All you have to do is to include the named-conf-local file at the end of the name.conf file. If your server would have been empty (which is a requirement for the installation of ispconfig btw.) and installed as decribed in the perfects etup guide for ispconfig, then bind would have been setup correctly for the use with ispconfig automatically.

thank you for your quick response, this is now the last part of my /etc/named.conf file.

PHP Code:

include "/var/named/chroot/var/named/named.local";
include 
"/var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local"

is this how it must be done?


btw, i dont have any zone declared in my /etc/named.conf file, as i said when i create a zone in ISPConfig, it is created in /var/named/chroot/var/named ..

If thats the file were ispconfig writes the zones in your installation, then its ok. You can freely configure this file in ispconfig under system > server config.

hi till, i already added a zone in mobile.domain.com, and added some test record.. but im unable to ping this record created.. heres my newly added zonefile..

$TTL 3600
@ IN SOA srv1.domain.com. admin.company.com. (
2013020401 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
7200 ; refresh, seconds
540 ; retry, seconds
604800 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds
;

test 86400 A 192.168.245.120

this file was in /var/named/chroot/var/named....

The file is incomplete as you did not add all required records. Incomplete files are skipped by bind.

Better use the dns wizard in ispconfig to add a zone as it will add required records like ns records automatically. If the ns records that you use for your zone are subdomains of the zone, then dont forget to add a-records for these subdomains as well.

It works!
 
thanks for this till, i created another zone, now using with wizard... so records were created automatically for me.. now i can ping the record that i created.. thanks for your help till, :)


Edit: Now, how am I gonna mark this thread solved? :D

Other system dont have named.conf.local
 
hi, just a follow up question before this thread will be mark solved,


In my other system with bind chroot installed, i didnt find any named.conf.local file, i want to include that file as what till said, is it on different location? thank you...

Edit: I do find it on /etc/named.conf.local but whenever i include that file in named.conf, bind will error

/etc/named.conf:71: open: /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local: file not found .. any help please?? thanks..

Zone created not detected :(
 
Update:

what i did is that, i tried to symlink the file /etc/named.conf.local to /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local

PHP Code:

ln /etc/named.conf.local /var/named/chroot/etc


then i add a zone in ISPConfig GUI, then restart named

PHP Code:

service named restart 

... it fail, another error occured.

PHP Code:

service named restart

The setup supported by ispconfig is described in the perfect setup guide. If you use a different setup which is not supported like you did, then files can be missing or might have to be created manually.
