    I'm diagnosing the ISPconfig running site with dns-check service http://www.checkdns.net.

    When I'm running it on target domain (8job8.com), it shows me the following error:

    NS list mismatch: registration authority reports that domain is hosted on the following servers: 'ns1.1trabajo1.com; ns2.1trabajo1.com', but DNS server ns1.1trabajo1.com reports domain to be hosted on '[parameter not found]'. Please make sure that you configure the same DNS servers in registrar database and on your DNS

    The site does look to work normally.

    Any idea what it means, and if I should care?

    Other tools shows error as well:

    This one reports about missing child servers (parents are fine), which I don't quite understand - perhaps I need to define some NS records for the domain?
    I already did it at registrar level - pointed it to ISPConfig domain server.

    Thanks again.

    Make sure that you added NS records for all of your nameservers.

    Just to clarify - every new site (i.e. it's DNS zone) will require specifying the 2 NS records, correct?

    Sites and dns zones are different things. Sites are in the apache and dns zones are in the dns manager. In every dns zone you have to specify all dns servers for that zone as NS records.

    I see.

    Is it possible to have a single zone for all the sites, and how much it can complicate things to manage in the long run?

    What is the recommended approach?

    Thanks again.

    Every DNS zone is for one domain. If all your sites are subdomains of the smae domain e.g. sub1.yourdomain.com sub2.yourdomain.com etc, you have to use one dns zone for them. If your sites use different domains, you have to use different zones for them.

    Ok, thanks for clarifying this.

    A suggestion - maybe ISPConfig should auto-fill these by default nameservers, for each created domain or zone.

    ISPConfig is doing this already if you use the dns wizard to create the dns records.

    Wow, now I see there is a wizard indeed who takes care of the most stuff!

    This functionality definitely should be to a separate button above "Add new DNS zone" - otherwise people think it same functionality (as in my case).

    Btw, are there any other wizards "hidden" in such way?

    Thanks again.
