    Hi,

    I setup DNS on Redhat and I can ping from client ns1.example.com, ns1, www.example.com but not example.com

    nslookup also look fine except example.com

    Anyone here can help me solve the problem.
    I suspect it's to do with resolv.conf or named..etc

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for the advice.
    I'd make changes as you'd recommended but unfortunately the result was the same.

    db.example.com
    @ IN SOA ns1.example.com. hostmaster.example.com.
    (.....)

    IN NS ns1.example.com.
    ns1 IN A 192.168.1.1
    www IN A 192.168.1.1

    when I do
    #nslookup example.com
    Server: 192.168.1.1
    Address: 192.168.1.1#53
    *** Can't find example.com : No answer

    if I do #dig example.com
    return "Status: NOERROR" but "ANSWER: 0"

    why here I get answer:0 but if I do #dig ns1.example.com got answer:1
    any idea where I've done wrong?
