    I am currently having problems with getting Bind9 to work properly.
    ISPCONFIG 3.0.3
    Ubuntu 10.10

    I've updated the NameServers in the Godaddy CP which are also pointing there now.

    I've added a DNS Zone using the template as usual but unable to get any response from the Domain.

    I restart Bind9 and this is the error I'm getting:
    Here is my output from:
    I double checked to make sure that the ISPCONFIG is pointing to the proper Bind9 directory, which it is.

    More output info:

    Does anyone have any ideas why this isn't working for me?

    As the error message says, you missed to add A-Records for NS1.IWEBSOURCE.NET and NS2.IWEBSOURCE.NET. A subdomain can normally not be used as ns record for the same domain, its the hen <> egg problem. To solve that, you have to add glue records in the domain server of the registry where you registered the domain.

    Odd, I have already setup a glued Record in the Godaddy CP. This was working properly when I was using the old 'mydns' on my old server but not with Bind9 on this server.

    I'm just trying to understand exactly what you mean though, because in the Godaddy CP, for the iwebsource.net domain, I added 'ns1' and 'ns2', then assigned my servers external IP address:

    Am I not suppose to use the same NS for the same domain name?

    And you added NS1.IWEBSOURCE.NET and NS2.IWEBSOURCE.NET A-records also in the zone IWEBSOURCE.NET in ispconfig? Adding them only at godaddy is not enough, you have to add them in the zone as well.

    I thought the wizard does that automatically.
    Any how, I did add two 'A' records for the name servers under that domains zone as well but no luck. (The image pic doesn't show the 2 A records I added though).

    Still nothing is working right :(

    What am I missing here?

    Seems as if your nameserver isn't responding:
    http://www.intodns.com/iwebsource.net

    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    and
    Code:
    netstat -uap
    ? Can you post the iwebsource.net zone file?

    netstat -tap
    netstat -uap
    I am assuming that the Zone file for iwebsource.net is?:
    pri.iwebsource.net

    Code:
    NS1.IWEBSOURCE.NET A 24.137.127.173
    NS2.IWEBSOURCE.NET A 24.137.127.173
    You've forgotten the final dots. It must look as follows:

    Code:
    NS1.IWEBSOURCE.NET[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B] A 24.137.127.173
    NS2.IWEBSOURCE.NET[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B] A 24.137.127.173
