    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (challenger) resolves to . It should resolve to 209.xxx.xxx.xxx. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.

    Some are all of these problems can be caused by
    /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you
    believe everything else is correct.

    Any help?

    Check your configuration of /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf. Also make sure your name servers are running on that server.

    I'm assuming that the A record for that Domain is showing up as a &.& rahter than the IP. If this is what i think it is, it's probably because you have the A recordset wrong. When i see this problem it's because my entry look like this.

    Domain.com IN A 10.10.10.10
    or
    domain.com A 10.10.10.10

    When it should look like this

    domain.com. IN A 10.10.10.10
    or
    domain.com. A 10.10.10.10



    Notice the Extra &.& Hope that helps, i could be off in left feild.

    Add an A entry for your hostname If your hostname changes or you never had an A entry in the first place and you do not want to do it manually you can now automaticly add the A entry by clicking on ' Add an A entry for your hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' (4.5.0 build 19 or later only)
