    I need to allow zone transfers on one domain.
    This because it is a .De and they do not allow 2 nameservers in the same subnet.

    So i know i need to edit named.conf to allow zone transfer from the ip from the secondary nameserver.

    But i do not no for sure what to add there.

    I saw something like

    allow-transfer {
    127.0.0.1;
    secondary.dns.ip;
    }

    Can anybody give me some clearnes.

    Thanks in advance

    Martin,
    There is nothing you need to do because the cpanel default bind config allows zone transfers to everyone!

    Infact that is not true.

    domain.de

    > domain.de
    > ns3.domain.com.: NOT AUTHORITATIVE for the zone domain.de
    > == END ==

    I now have added the folowing in named.conf

    zone "domain.de" {
    type master;
    file "/var/named/domain.de.db";
    allow-transfer { 11.11.11.11; };
    };


    I have to wait until the next zone update to see of this works.

    Martin,
    This is a different problem all together. It says it received a non-authorative answer. you might want to read about authoratative answers and the implication but it has nearly nothing to do with zone transfers!
