    Say I have 2 servers with ispconfig installed on them called s1 and s2 and my domain is called domain.net. I have one static ip address from my isp. that points to a server called dns.domain.net. Request come in like this: first to dns.domain.net then to s1.domain.net, and s2.domain.net. is there a way to get ispconfig to input the info in the named.conf and zone files on dns.domain.net or will i have to always modify the named.conf file and the zone files on dns.domain.net myself to add new sites and zones. Also I used bind9 on the server dns. Also all systems are running ubuntu server edition 8.04.1. and the 2 ispconf servers s1 and s2 were setup via the perfect server setup from howtoforge.
    As I am still new to dns and ispconf, it helps to see examples with the explanation.
    :confused:

    An Idea that I have.......

    I have thought that maybe I could make my dns master (dns.domain.net) the slave for s1 and s2, and that would give the updates to zone files as changed, but I would still have to set up the original zones and zone files on dns.domain.net first right. Could still use a little help trying to figure this out.

    That's right.

    one more question

    That is what I had thought, but what would have to happen if I were to add a new domain like testdomain.net. would that get updated as well with this setup or would I have to add the slave zone entry on the slave server? How would that work?

    is there a good dns management software similar to what is inside ispconf that i can install on my dns server.

    Also my setups with ispconfig always erase my reverse zones, where the PTR records are.

    You'd have to create the slave zone in named.conf manually (like in the link I posted).
