DNS Propagation Issue with Name Servers

I have configured a web server and 2 name servers and clustered the dns. The clustered machines all indicate with green checks that they are communicating. The web server is set to synchronize to the 2 name servers and the 2 name servers point back to the web server and are set to standalone.

web server dns path diagram shows
ws
---> ns1
---> ns2

name server 1 dns path diagram shows
ns1

name server 2 dns path diagram shows
ns2

I can dig from the web server and get a successful resolve on both name server ip addresses. When I dig from the ip of either name server nothing resolves.

I have gone to shell and forced a dns synchronize (./dnscluster syncall) and the command comes back successful (syncing to all machines in cluster ...... Done) and yet still the A records do not get properly (or at least do not appear to be) propagated to the name servers.

Can someone assist me in resolving what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance :confused:

DNS named.conf file not being updated on name servers - Please Help

I have configured a web server and 2 name servers and clustered the dns. The clustered machines all indicate with green checks that they are communicating. The web server is set to synchronize to the 2 name servers and the 2 name servers point back to the web server and are set to standalone.

name server 1 dns path diagram shows
ns1

name server 2 dns path diagram shows
ns2

Note - on the web server the Nameserver selection is set to disabled and on the name servers the Namesever selection is set to BIND.

When I update the web server with A records, the zone file is being pushed from the web server to the name servers (synchronization appears to happen), but the name servers are not updating the named.conf automatically, so the web addresses requested are not being resolved because the DNS servers are not looking at the zone files that were copied over by the web server.

I realize it can be done manually, but this should not be necessary.

Thank you.

I apologize for the threading. I was trying to post a new thread (new post) since I had isolated the problem and for some reason it kept adding to my original post even though I was selecting new post. Let me know what I was doing wrong that kept adding to the same thread.
