Help putting it all together

    I'm trying to run my own DNs servers using myDNS.

    I went on the How To Run Your Own Name Servers With ISPConfig And GoDaddy tutorial and did everything in the first page, creating entries for ns1.example.com & ns2.example.com as well as example.com to a third ip where the web/mail server is.

    At this point I installed two machines with Debian+MySQL+myDNS+MyDNSConfig, giving them ns1 & ns2 for host names and example.com for domain name during the installation.

    I have checked it up and it's all running good. I can log into MyDNSConfig web panels and make changes.

    BUT - what to put it ?
    Do I need to create SOA entries for example.com on both machines before I start filling entries for the rest of my domains ?

    When I go into the SOA zones and press the create new zone, what do I put in the Origin field ? is this where I put new domain names for the first time ? (mydomain.com) before I create it's other records ?

    In the "name server" field it say : ns1.example.com on ns1 but ns2.example.com on ns2. (this are the default entries I gave). Is this correct or is it better to have the same name server default on both machines ?

    Thank you in advance for the help.

    Yep,
    Can't seem to get it all to work.

    First thing that I don't understand is the name server entry.
    my name servers are : ns1.main_domain.com and ns2.main_domain.com
    in the default NS field and the primery autorative name server field, do I put the same entry on both machines or do I put for each machine it's own name ?

    You put in the same entry on both machines. Actually, you could use MySQL replication, that way you have to create your records only on the master: http://www.howtoforge.com/mysql_database_replication :)

    I willprobably do it in the end, I'v seen the tutorial before, but at the moment I dont have time to play with the configuraion.
    As I understand, the tables on the slave machine need to be empty before this process can start...

    Stupid .Me I kinda moved most of my domains onto the new DNS servers and turnd them into a production enviroment, So I'm not very into messing with it.

    I'm thinking to give the DNS area a rest for the time being and go back to work on my web admin system.
    I'll go back to it after finishing some more stages.
