I have a client account setup on my server with the main domain name of x, then I have 10 add-on domains on that domain. All of the add-on's resolve just fine, but the main domain doesn't. This happened because I setup the account before I had repointed the nameserver entries at the registrar. I went in and manually added all the entries to named for this domain, and I restarted named, but it will not resolve to the upstream name server. I had a second domain do the same thing, and I fixed it by removing the domain then readding it, but I'd rather not have to do that to the other one with all the config changes I'd have to make all over again, so how can you add a domain name and have it propagage out?

Thanks for any help!

Are you sure the zone is setup correctly?

Show us the zone settings for the domain.

cat /var/named/domain.com.db

I made a direct cppy of another one and just changed the names, but that was only in names.conf and then the .db file. Is there another place? I ended up just removing the domain and readding it through WHM and it works now, but I would like to know in the future how to do it manually.
