    Hostname problems

    I`m getting this error everytime I log in to the WHM. I click on the button each time and follow the instructions but it just don`t stick.

    The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname ( This is generally because the entry was never added. However this could also be the result of your nameserver(s) being down. If you would like to attempt to automatically add the entry, .
    When I add the entry I get this response Bind reloading on carpfish using rndc zone: [] Add Complete
    Yet the next time I log into the WHM it gives the first error again. I`ve added it as it requests to each time but it just doesn`t want to know.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    I`m a n00b to dedicated servers, so go gentle with me please

    WHM always checks upon login if your hostname is pointing at your IP in DNS. If pop-up windows appears there every time you login even though you clicked on "Add the A entry" it means that your DNS isn't authoritative for your domain lookups. Add correct A entry in your primary/secondary nameservers and this window won't appear again.
