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.
