    Hi 2gether

    I try to set up a PTR record for an IPv4 adress.

    I've done it exactly like the manual describes it on pages 208 to 210, that means, I've set up a master DNS Zone for xxx.yyy.zzz.in-addr.arpa in the ISPConfig3 Webpanel. Set the nameserver and the e-mail adress. Under the tab "records" I've set up (only) a PTR entry with the last octet of the IP-adress and the canonical hostname which is my mailservers adress (mail.domain.com).

    But something seems doesn't to work: If I go to the /etc/bind directory I see a pri.xxx.yyy.zzz.in-addr.arpa.err zone.

    I don't get it why it always give an error.

    Do you have any hints? Thanks so much in advance.

    Add NS records to the zone.

    I added two NS records to the zone, but I still got the same issue.

    BTW: do I need to add a zone as mail.domain.com (where the PTR record points to) or domain.com?

    your NS entry should be NS <Zone> <DNS Server>

    Ie:
    NS xxx.yyy.zzz.in-addr.arpa. ns1.domain1.com. 86400
    NS xxx.yyy.zzz.in-addr.arpa. ns2.domain1.com. 86400
