Hello everyone. Ive just installed 2 debian etch servers with ispconfig. Everything went all right and i am able to run all task avabible on the web admin site. But iam having some trouble. Iam using ispconfig to configure 1 domain. Since i will be using an external webserver and mailserver i will just use the dns manager part. Ive created an master zone for my domain where i point domain ip to my external webserver. Ive also created an alias for the external webserver and it works fine. When i try to resolv the host everything works like it should. Both domainname and alias. To the trouble. Ive created an a record for my mailserver and then created an mx pointer which points to my newly created A record. But those never start to work. When i use a dns query tool it says that no MX or A record is registred exept the one for the domain. A record =example.com Since iam a windows administrator my knowledge of bind9 is terrible but the zone file looks like this. ; NS ns1.example.com. ; Inet Address of name server 1 NS ns2.example.com. ; Inet Address of name server 2 ; mail.example.com MX 10 mail.example.com. example.com. A 126.96.36.199 mail.example.com A 188.8.131.523 www CNAME example.com. ;;;; MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ;;;; In my eyes, this looks like a working config, but like ive said, this is for sure not a bug, just badly configured by me. "Ive replaced the real domainname with example ." Any suggestions where i did wrong?
