    Help on DNS Configuration [solved]


    I would like to use ISPConfig 3 to setup my DNS server but I'm a noob in this domain and I don't know how to acheive that.

    I've a dedicated server, with a fully qualified name, let call it with IP

    I've another domain, let call it

    So now, how can I manage the zones of with ISPConfig 3 using as primary NS ?

    What I've done so far, is to change the ns1 of to and the ns2 is setup with an IP of my registar.

    Now I'm a bit confuse on what I've to do on ISPConfig 3.

    When I click on "Add new DNS Zone [SOA]" in DNS, I'm not sure of some values.
    Is this correct ?
    - Zone (SOA) :
    - NS :
    - Email : I don't know what it is for ? It is the MX ? or a real address ?
    - Allow zone transfers ... : IP of my registar for the NS2
    - Also Notify : ???
    - Update ACL : ???

    And next, I suppose I must create some records for this zone, but which ones ? are there mandatory records ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Better use the dns wizard, it creates all nescessary dns records for the zone automatically.

    Ha yes, indeed ! :)
    I didn't seen this difference, I think it is not clearly identified.
    Thanks for the advice.

    Now the domain is perfectly configured on the server, dig and nslookup don't complain in "local" but I get SERVFAIL with a remote dig ... I will wait 24h more.

    I don't know if it is because of the default config of ispc3, but bind was configured to only listen on
    So, I've changed it for:
    And now everything work like a charm :)
