First, thank you very much for your detailed email to my questions according single/multi server setup, and of course your great tutorials.
As everything is written in English here, I do the same.
Let me explain my situation first:
I have a server running Debian 6, IP (176.9.XX.75) with installed Proxmox (I followed their installation guide).
On this machine, I created 4 containers using the build in OpenVZ Wizard:
web.rackster-server.ch (176.9.YYY.209 - Web- & DB-Server)
mail.rackster-server.ch (176.9.YYY.210 - Mail-Server)
ns1.rackster-server.ch (176.9.YYY.211 - DNS-Server)
ns2.rackster-server.ch (176.9.YYY.212 - DNS-Server)
(The IP's are in a different subnet than the host server.)
All of them have the setup from your tutorial, following it line for line.
Additionaly I added these DNS records using ISPConfig:
What is the problem now?
A mail 184.108.40.206 0
A ns1 220.127.116.11 0
A ns2 18.104.22.168 0
A rackster-server.ch. 22.214.171.124 0
A web 126.96.36.199 0
A www 188.8.131.52 0
MX rackster-server.ch. mail.rackster-server.ch. 10
NS rackster-server.ch. ns2.rackster-server.ch. 0
NS rackster-server.ch. ns1.rackster-server.ch. 0
Base problem is, that pointing to the servers using their "domain" doesn't work. If I go to them using their IP, everything works as it should.
Also, the jobqueue in ISPConfig does show a lot of jobs which are opened, but they are not getting done. Base problem would be related to this, because the DNS records from above aren't written to the DNS server, would't it?
As I don't have much of knowledge (yeah yeah you know that, don't laugh now
) I have no idea what could be the problem. Only thing I can guess is something with the network config?
Network config on host system:
and some IPv6 things
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
# multiserver setup
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
# Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
176.9.YYY.209 web.rackster-server.ch web
Edit: Well now I am not even able to SSH the mail, ns1 and ns2 server, but they are up and running...
I thank you for sharing your knowledge and helping me.
