    I'm stumped. I have a client where he forwards all cpanel email straight through his exchange server, so on the cpanel box, I had the MX record pointing to exchange, then had a "A" record called exchange pointing to their server IP.

    Now, his server is down and I would like to move his email (temporarily) to cPanel. I changed the MX record to domain.com. and use the mail CNAME to domain.com. When I save the DNS record, I get the following error:

    Fatal, neither ndc or rndc was found on this server (servername).

    Zone Modified!

    I verified the changes I made to this DNS record and it looks exactly as the other customers. Any suggestions?

    Changed the MX entry from:

    domain.com. 14400 IN MX 0 domain.com.

    to

    domain.com. 14400 IN MX 0 mail.domain.com. and still no go. Any suggestions?

    Just a suggestion, but you could try /scripts/fixndc
