    DNS configuration problem

    Although I feel myself savvy with DNS, there is a problem I hang. Maybe it is just something so obvious, that became overseen.

    Okay, I have two RaQs and want to use their DNS services for domain registrations: The primary DNS service should reside on one RaQ and the secondary should live on the other.

    When doing a zone check for a sample domain, this fatal error is shown:

    > The nameserver list doesn't match the given one:
    > The given nameserver list (ns1.main.tld., ns2.main.tld.) is not consistent
    > with the one retrieved from the zone (host1.main.tld.).

    What have I missed to do ?

    If necessary, I can post all details how I configured DNS on the RaQs, but since this is quite complex (and I'm a bit lazy currently ;-) I hope for a quick insight :-)

    I believe the details entered at the registrar end is different from the one you have in your nameserver..

    It would be nice if you provide the domain name..

    No, the DNS entries are exactly the same.

    Sorry, you are right, I had to write a bit more :-) The domain I try to configure is cgiscripts-perl.com

    Here is the DNS report: http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsre...ripts-perl.com

    And here is the Zone Check:
    http://zonecheck.denic.de/zonecheck/...v4&transp4=std

    Since the domain seems to be reachable (can you check this from your location ?) I could be live with this error as long as anything works.

    By the way: When adding the (optional) NS entries to the SOA record of the domain, this error disappears, but an other similar comes up (also fatal).

    And an other problem comes up I noticed right now (worked yesterday, I think): The secondary DNS server is not responding (see DNS report from above link).

    On this RaQ, I have just enabled DNS service and added one record to the "secondary services" section for the above domain. No primary services set up overall there.

    On the first RaQ (acting as primary DNS) I have allowed zone transfers to the second one by typing in its WAN-IP.

    But neither in the RaQ docs nor elsewhere I found an explizit explanation how to allow a RaQ acting as secondary DNS via zone transfer.

    Or do I have to provide any DNS records again at the primary services section of the RaQ managing the secondary DNS - but this would be quite inconvenient in case of changes to keep the records consistent.

    When we did into your primary and secondary nameserver, it has the following ns record

    cgiscripts-perl.com. 1D IN NS star1.starenterprise.com

    The nameserver-star1.starenterprise.com are listed (at your nameservers) as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers

    FYI: We can reach your domain without any problem.

    Zone transfer seems to be completed successfully... :-)

    Thanks for this fast reply :-)

    > cgiscripts-perl.com. 1D IN NS star1.starenterprise.com

    Even if I should fully disqualify now for my statement "I'm savvy with DNS" ;-) but where does this entry origin from ? Of course, star1 is the hostname of the RaQ... anyway, I see where the problem could be:

    Although I added A records for dns1 and dns2 to point to the corresponding IP, it seems that they are not considered and instead of the server hostname is used. Have you an idea why ?

    Okay, if this is the only problem, I think I will really ignore it and proceed.
