The entire things works like charm (in my case, disclaimer ;-) ) including the pdns db showing relevant entries in the tables. The only thing that confused me was mydns was not killed until I rebooted (in my case a container), and still the ISPConfig Service Monitor states 'mydns working' instead of 'pdns working'. Thank ISPConfig team anyway!!!
@BorderAmigos: The reason I wanted pdns is mydns seems to be yet production ready. (I had a similar problem like stated here http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39767
and here http://www.clarksys.com/blog/2005/07...g-to-powerdns/
and intermittent service. Even in the link I posted in the post above, Till mentioned about the deficiency and I experienced the same. I am using powerdns for the first time and just having a strange feeling over BIND9. ;-) However, Till and Falko reported that they have mydns without issues.
