Hello everyone, please help me ASAP if you can.

I have a weird problem with DNS zones, it would appear to me that everything is configured correctly but somehow it must not be.

I have two domains configured (I have xxd some characters because of privacy).

At the registrar the second domain is configured to have unique nameservers such as

ns1.DOMAIN1.IT
ns2.DOMAIN1.IT

because my domain 1 customer doesn't want to reveal they are my resellers.

However, domain 2 is not reachable, pingable or contactable in any way shape or form.

These are the DNS ZONES for BOTH domains

DOMAIN 1:

; cPanel
; Zone file for jamxxx.it
$TTL 14400
@ IN SOA ns1.hostingxxxxxx.net. logmonitor.hostingxxxx.net. ( 2004093003 ; serial, todays date+todays
14400 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
3600000 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

jamxxx.it. IN NS ns1.hostingxxxxxx.net.
jamxxx.it. IN NS ns2.hostingxxxxx.net.

jamxxx.it. IN A 66.98.xxx.16

localhost.jamxxx.it. IN A 127.0.0.1

jamxxx.it. IN MX 0 jamxxx.it.

mail IN CNAME jamxxx.it.
www IN CNAME jamxxx.it.
ftp IN A 66.98.188.16
pippo 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
www.pippo 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
DOMAIN 2 (THE ONE WHICH IS DOWN)


; cPanel
; Zone file for goldenxxx.it
$TTL 14400
@ IN SOA ns1.hostingxxx2.net. logmonitor.hostingxxx.net. ( 2004093007 ; serial, todays date+todays
14400 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
3600000 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

goldenxxx.it. IN NS ns1.hostingxxx2.net.
goldenxxx.it. IN NS ns2.hostingxxx2.net.

goldenxxx.it. IN A 66.98.xxx.16

localhost.goldenxxx.it. IN A 127.0.0.1

goldenxxx.it. IN MX 0 goldenxxx.it.

mail IN CNAME goldenxxx.it.
www IN CNAME goldenxxx.it.
ftp IN A 66.98.xxx.16
areareservada 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
www.areareservada 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
areariservata 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
www.areariservata 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
privatearea 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
www.privatearea 14400 IN A 66.98.xxx.16
Many thanks to any generous helping souls out there.

Needless to say, bind has been restarted several times and no other domain on the server has problems at all.

I have also added two more rows such as

ns1 A IP address 1st virtual ns
ns2 A IP address 2nd virtual ns

to domain 1 restarted bind again with no effect.

Thanks again!

Sorry I do not frankly see why knowing what the domains involved are would help....

Isn't DNS a generalized topic applicable to all domains?

Suit yourself. Perhaps someone else will pick up this thread.
I guess that's what they call helping spirit, isn't it?

No comment...

Perhaps YOU failed to explain why I would have to disclose domain details (see above) to which you answered quite rudely...

That's where I'm going to stop.

Please remember polite questions should deserve polite answers.

I don't frankly think that was the case in your instance.


In fact, the solution to the problem was very simple:

All you had to say was:

replace ns1 with ns1.jamxxx.it and ns2 with ns2.jamxxx.it in the DNS zone of domain jamxxx.it and restart bind


There you go... I have just proved my point: details of the domains WERE NOT needed at all!

It would have been nice, rather than sweat for 4 days to have actually received some nice help as I politely requested, but never mind...

Why make it harder for people who might help you, to help you?

Did you edit the info in the original problem post... That doesn't seem at all obvious from the info you originally posted (actually I don't see it there at all, that's why I was wondering if you edited it to be correct?). If we'd had the original domains, we could have run some tests on it to find out the problem.

*shrug* Well, you made it too hard for anyone to help you... and since you weren't paying anyone to help, it wasn't at all worth anyone's while to get over your intentional hurdles, and hence, no one helped. See, it's cause = effect. Rarely, someone might help despite all that, (maybe they have too much time on their hands), but looking at it now, I don't think it was at all possible to help you because of the information you withheld.

That's all I needed to be told then a few days back rather than be treated with rude answers!!! Would you not agree?

Thanks for your help and standpoint that clarified the issue.

P.S.: The original post was edited on the day I posted because I made some typos.... an my posts are all there intact, whilst someone else......
