CNAME issue

    Am I missing something here or has the functionality of CNAMEs been reduced in ISPConfig 3 vs ISPConfig 2?

    In ISPConfig 2 you could create a CNAME to any fully qualified domain name.
    In ISPConfig 3 whatever I specify as the CNAME target gets the respective zone's domain tacked on. For example:

    For a zone: example1.com
    CNAME host1 www.example2.com

    In ISPConfig 2 digging host1.example.com would return the IP for www.example2.com.

    In ISPConfig 3 I can only get host1.example.com to reply with www.example2.com.example1.com!

    I'm sure this has been addressed before, but I couldn't find any threads...
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    The opposite is the case, the DNS functionality has been extended a lot.

    Every FQDN (Fully qualified domain name) has to end with a dot. So the correct record is:

    For a zone: example1.com.
    CNAME host1 www.example2.com.

    and not

    For a zone: example1.com
    CNAME host1 www.example2.com
