    4 days trying to get this working, but...

    When i ask to DC for rDNS subdelegation they replied with this:
    The Delegation for XXX.XXX.XXX.0/24 has been set and you are able to control the settings for the Block.

    I have followed this (maybe 20 times):

    On my domain registrar (enom):
    Domain -> Advanced Tools -> Register a Name Server, and then: -> XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (Ip of master powerdns vps) -> XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (Ip of slave powerdns vps)

    I ask for help on DC and on SolusVM, they don't help too much.
    OMG, 4 days, and can't? I'm Fail? Game over? Impossible? I can not surrender!

    I believe have solved the problem.

    The problem is with my root sql password, that contains special characters like pass#word, and this # comment the line. (lol)


    How do i use it on pdns.conf? I have commented my password. OMG!

    pass#word = pass(commented the rest of password).

    Looking at the source to the config parser, pDNS will only read a line up to the # and there doesn't look to be a way to quote/escape the value. Best bet would be to change your password to not include #'s
