I already have two hosts pointing to my machine, and I am trying to add a third "webmail.user.domain.com, but I receive DNS failure lookup. I created a configuration file for "webmail" with the same settings as the other two hosts. My primary zone is this: $ORIGIN user.domain.com. @ IN SOA ns.user.domain.com. hostmaster.user.domain.com. ( 0 ; serial 1D ; refresh 1H ; retry 1W ; expire 3H ) ; minimum
@ IN NS ns.user.domain.com. @ IN MX 10 mail.user.domain.com. ns IN A n.n.n.n mail IN A n.n.n.n m0 IN A n.n.n.n m1 IN A n.n.n.n www0 IN CNAME m0 www1 IN CNAME m0 webmail IN CNAME m0
I guess my question is why does webmail receive a DNS lookup failure even though its pointing to my machine? Do I need to create a zone in named.conf? Any help will greatly be appreciated, thanks.
