Default DNS TXT record: The hostname has the wrong format

Hello,

I need to create a TXT record into a DNS Zone in ISPConfig 3.0.3.3 where hostname field is "@" text.

When I click the save button ISPConfig shows me this error:
"The hostname has the wrong format".

Is it not possible to configure this ?

What I need to configure:

TXT record
Hostname: @
Text: MS=ms90127323
TTJ: 3600
Active: "yes"

Regards,

Rogerio.

@ is not a valid hostname. If the txt record shall be for the zone, then enter the zone name with a dot at the end in the host field:

yourdomain.tld.

or leave the host field empty.

Hi till,

I don't understand why @ is not valid.
Look, I need this entry because we are configuring our DNS to respond to a Microsoft request.
The customer is starting to use Office365 and need to validade their domain to start using it in Office365 environment.

I had tried your instructions (entering zone name wth dot and leaving host filed empty) before starting this post without sucess.

I really need to create this record with host field with @.
This is a limitation of ISPConfig or BIND ?

Regards.

Rogerio.
