Default Reverse DNS problems

Hi all,
I have a problem with my reverse dns.
I have installed Fedora Core 5 on a new computer folowing the perfect setup on howtoforge and ISPConfig Version: 2.2.27.
When i add a domain or a sub-domain, ispconfig created the pri.domain.name, restart's the named service and if i try dns domain.name or www domain.name it work's fine, it resolves to 1.2.3.4 but if i try a dns 1.2.3.4 it doesn't resolve in domain.name or www.domain.name.

I triyed a dig -x ip and here is the output

[root@CrazyDesign ~]# dig -x 86.106.120.11

; <<>> DiG 9.4.1-P1 <<>> -x 86.106.120.11
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 29367
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;11.120.106.86.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR

;; Query time: 5 msec
;; SERVER: 80.96.50.2#53(80.96.50.2)
;; WHEN: Sat Nov 22 14:20:24 2008
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 44

I see there is a SERVFAIL and from what i read on the forum i understand that is a problem.

Can anyone help me in some way and tell me what to do to fix this problem?

Thank you all in advance,
Alex

Please ask your provider that gave you the IP to create a reverse record for you.

Hi falko,
Thank you for your response but that isn't the solution.
I have 2 IP's from my provider 86.127.113.x1 and 86.127.113.x2 and on 86.127.113.x1 i have an IP class routed (86.106.120.0/24).
I had all the sites on an older server and all worked fine untill i have installed all on a new server (Fedora Core 5 following the perfect setup).
The diference is that now, the reverse dns doen NOT work.
On the old server, when i triyed dns domain.com it gaved me 1.2.3.4 (an IP from the IP's class) and dns 1.2.3.4 responded with domain.com but now this thing doen not work anymore.
I think there my be a bind/named problem.

Also,
on the old server i had pri.113.127.86.in-addr.arpa (for the primary IP on wich is the IP class routed) and pri.120.106.86.in-addr.arpa wich contained the end of the IP from the IP class and the domain/subdomain asociated to IP
$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA ns1.CrazyDesign.biz. hostmaster.CrazyDesign.biz. (
2008090803 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
28800 ; Refresh
7200 ; Retry
604800 ; Expire
86400) ; Minimum TTL
NS ns1.CrazyDesign.biz.
NS ns2.CrazyDesign.biz.
17 PTR vreau-sa-imi-spui-ca-ma-iubesti-draguta.CrazyDesign.biz.
17 PTR http://www.vreau-sa-imi-spui-ca-ma-i...razyDesign.biz.
.
.
.
.
109 PTR www.RadioStarPlay.com.

;;;; MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ;;;;

and named.conf also had:
zone "120.106.86.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "pri.120.106.86.in-addr.arpa";
};
zone "113.127.86.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "pri.113.127.86.in-addr.arpa";
};

Now named.conf does NOT have this 2 entryes and those 2 files does NOT exist. I have triyed to make them manually, restarted named and no errors comed up but after adding a new subdomain in ISPConfig those 2 files created by me had dissapeared.


Can you please help solving this out?
Thank's

Found a solution but it is not so good.
After adding a domain/subdomain in ISPConfig i go on DNS Administration and create a new PTR with the domain/subdomain name and ip and then the domain.name resolves to 1.2.3.4 and 1.2.3.4 rezolves to domain.name.

The problem is that i think this should be done by ISPConfig in the moment i add the domain/subdomain. Is this a bug or it eork's wrong just at me?

Thank you in advance for your responses
Alex,

You must create the PTR records manually in ISPConfig - that's no bug.

Ok, i think't that's a bug because on the plder server i haven't created any PTR records and the forward and reverse dns was working just fine.

I'm glad i found how to solve the problem and create those PTR.

Thank's for your responses and for the work you do.
