Default Automatic PTR zone creation fail!


First of all, thanks in advance, and sorry but my english is very poor.

From the latest update of ISPConfig to version 2.2.24 the automatic PTR creation does not work for me. And all entries has deleted.

How I recreate de PTR zones?

Temporary I have put this entries manually

but in the past this job has automatic..

Waht can I do?

I expect that the question is understandable..

The PTR records were created automatically when you craete a DNS Record, you can not create them manually. The way ISPConfig creates PTR records has been changed in the latest versions as the way there were created before was not correct and the ptr files should not contain all domains, just one per IP.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

I add a new Domain in ISPConfig and ISPConfig generate this file:
And no PTR entries...

Filename: pri.newdomain.com

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA dns.mydomain.com. myemail.mydomain.com. (
2008072201 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
28800 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
604800 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds
NS dns.mydomain.com. ; Inet Address of name server 1
NS dns2.mydomain.com ; Inet Address of name server 2

MX 10 mail.newdomain.com.

newdomain.com. A x.y.z.w
mail A x.y.z.w
test A x.y.z.w

Then If I want a PTR Record I put manually in pri.z.y.x.in-addr.arpa

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA dns.mydomain.com. hostmaster.mydomain.com. (
2008072201 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
28800 ; Refresh
7200 ; Retry
604800 ; Expire
86400) ; Minimum TTL
NS dns.mydomain.com.
NS dns2.mydomain.com.
50 PTR somedomain.com.
51 PTR dns1.somedomain.com
52 PTR dns2.somedomain.com


50 PTR dns.mydomain.com.
52 PTR dns2.mydomain.com.
50 PTR mail.newdomain.com.
50 PTR test.newdomain.com.

What is the best way to do this? or what is the way of ISPConfig put PTR entries?

in this file ISPConfig only put a PTR entry of "somedomain.com" and no entry for "mydomain.com" and "newdomain.com"

Thanks in advance
