Default DNS and mail box problems

Hi,

First time user of ISP3, Please give me some idea how to tackle this 2 problems.

My setup is: A Dell GX520 PC with SUSE 12.1 (32 bit). ISPConfig3 (3.0.4.1) installed as " The perfect server with Apache2 by Falko Timme (11/18/2011)". Also another PC running XP on the same subnet used for testing the "Dell ISP Server tadj2".

On the Dell server (10.0.1.152) with ISP3, i have created a client, 1 DNS zone (computerinstruments.com.au) , 1 web site and 1 mail box. Isp3 monitor shows all service (web,ftp,smtp,pops,imap,dns and my sql) is ON LINE. On the XP (10.0.1.30) i can see the test web page coming up OK.

Problem 1: When I use nslookup on XP to check the DNS records on server 10.0.1.152, I got a error return of can't find computerinstruments.com.au server failed. I don't think it is a firewall issue since i have checked the SUSE firewall and it is disabled and ISP3 firewall have 53 open. I have also with SERVFAIL error even if i do the nslookup on the dell server itself. Is there something else that i need to do on set up?

Problem 2 I try to connect to the mail box on the dell server tadj2 ). when i creating the account on Thunderbird in the XP. Thunder can pick up the imap server 10.0.1.152 but can't create the account since it keep come back with error of "username or password invalid", I try to set up another client and mailbox but with the same error. i have attached the netstat for info.

Did you check your zone on www.intodns.com ?

Thanks Falko,

Problem 1: The return from INTODNS is form our current DNS server (tadjlinux 4 years old). The Dell ISP server (tadj2, 10.0.1.152) that has the server failed error is going to be the replacement server once it is ready.

Problem 2: the log shows auth error. i have reset the password for the client but still the same error. log attached:

Can you check your named.conf and all included files to see if your zone was set up correctly?

Please run
Code:
newaliases
and restart Postfix.

I have checked /var/lib/named/etc/named.conf and named.conf.include,both look OK to me.

By the way, i do installed KDE with x-window decktop with this Dell ISP server, will that cause any problem?

for the mail box connecting problem, same error after running newaliases. also on the mail log "Dec 16 19:01:21 tadj2 dovecot: dovecot: User terry not allowed to log in using too low UNIX UID 1000(terry) (see first_valid_uid in config file)" . Should i change the UID ?

What about /etc/named.conf (or /etc/bind/named.conf, if you use Debian)? Did you check the named.conf.local file and the included zone files?

IT shouldn't affect named.

Did you create that user through ISPConfig?

I do checked /etc/named.conf which is the same as /var/lib/named/etc/named.conf.

Terry was created at SUSE 12.1 installation and i also created terry as client in ISP. I have also created a second client and it's mail box in ISP, but has the same username and password invalid error.

Hi;

After editing the named.conf and some files in /etc. the network link stop working. I will re-install SUSE and ISP , and post a new thread when needed.

Thanks Falko, may need your help on the new thread soon.

WCSING.
