Host A entry not found

    I'm having this frustating issue with Host A entrie on two servers. I have my main domain on server #1 with server hostname as and the dns on that server. On the second server I have even though the domain itself is not hosted on that server.

    problem is on each server I get the usual hostname A entry not found popup error.

    I deleted the dns entry, re-added it on both servers, same issue.

    I've done /scripts/fixndc and all.

    On server 1 I edited the domain's dns to add

    server - IP address of that server
    server1 - IP address of server 2

    hoping that it would fix...been over 24hrs, same issue.

    Any suggestions?

    Go on, have a guess
    You haven't created a separate zone file for each hostname have you ( and If you have, you should delete any and all that exist on both servers. Then only on the authoritative server for, edit that zone file ( and add A records for each hostname: server and server1

    I've done this but unfortunately I'm still getting the popups on the 2nd and 3rd server even after removing the A entry dns zones from each one.

    What do you suggest?
