    Is something wrong with a creation zones dns on ispconfig 3?? i mean when i created one zone to my domain (, ispconfig 3 created this:
    A 0
    A mail 0
    A www 0
    MX 10
    NS 0
    NS 0

    i created on my domain panel a registres type a and But i used and show me this.

    Category Status Test name Information


    TLD Parent Check: WARNING: Looks like the parent servers do not have information for your TLD when asked. This is ok but can be confusing.

    DNS Parent sent Glue: The parent nameserver is not sending out GLUE for every nameservers listed, meaning he is sending out your nameservers host names without sending the A records of those nameservers. It's ok but you have to know that this will require an extra A lookup that can delay a little the connections to your site. This happens a lot if you have nameservers on different TLD ( for example with nameserver


    NS records from your nameservers: NS records got from your nameservers listed at the parent NS are:
    Oups! I could not get any nameservers from your nameservers (the ones listed at the parent server). Please verify that they are not lame nameservers and are configured properly.

    Mismatched NS records: WARNING: One or more of your nameservers did not return any of your NS records.

    Same Glue: Hmm,I do not consider this to be an error yet, since I did not detect any nameservers at your nameservers.

    Mismatched NS records: WARNING: One or more of your nameservers did not return any of your NS records.

    DNS servers responded ERROR: One or more of your nameservers did not respond:
    The ones that did not respond are: ( is my ip ns record)

    Multiple Nameservers: ERROR: Looks like you have less than 2 nameservers. According to RFC2182 section 5 you must have at least 3 nameservers, and no more than 7. Having 2 nameservers is also ok by me.

    Nameservers are lame ERROR: looks like you have lame nameservers. The following nameservers are lame: ( is my ip ns record)

    Missing nameservers reported by your nameservers You should already know that your NS records at your nameservers are missing, so here it is again:


    SOA record No valid SOA record came back!

    MX Records Oh well, I did not detect any MX records so you probably don't have any and if you know you should have then they may be missing at your nameservers!

    WWW A Record Your A record is: [] ( is my ip public).

    I dont modify nothing, i just created with ispconfig panel and registre ns1 and ns2, and on my domain panel to. My website is see on, but i cant resolve if i type, i send emails but i cant receive. If i type nslookup MX

    Non-authoritative answer:
    *** Can't find MX: No answer


    nslookup ns

    ** server can't find ns: NXDOMAIN

    Any help, i mistake something??

    A www 0
    CNAME www 0

    OK so i've checked your domain. You have problem with your NameServers.

    Your NS16.ZONEEDIT.COM doesen't respond .... seems to be down
    Your NS14.ZONEEDIT.COM it's up .... but it second - you should put it first.

    You dont control your zones from ISPConfig control panel.. those records must be added at

    Later edit:
    If you want to control your DNS zones.... create at your domain registar with your own NS (Ex: and, of course if you have an static IP. Create this NS record in ISPConfig and the rest of your DNS records (A, MX, CNAME, etc...).

    If you are confused, try to buy Till's and Falko manual for ISPConfig it's only 5 Euro.

    Yes. DNS zone must be added at If you create your own NS then the zones created in ISPConfig will work.

    why is it that when i create a zone file in ISPConfig 3, it will create a zone with a priv prefix? eg:

    The prefix should be pri, not priv. "pri" stands for primary (nameserver).
