    Hi,

    Jul 20 06:16:24 myhost named-wrapper[1721]: lame server resolving 'www.ghomeishi.com' (in 'ghomeishi.com'?): 211.152.33.80#53

    not for just one site, for at least 100 unique sites each day!

    it is just for one of the servers, i dont want to turn it off, i just want to know when and how this happens,
    i checked domains that are listed in lame server resolving line, for example this ghomeishi.com, i checked whois and it was not pointing to our server at all.

    so what is the reason of this message ?:)

    Thanks.

    Thanks for great site,

    I just want to know when and how does it happen, what makes this error, Do they really point their site to our servers or is that kinda call from script...

    Thanks again,

    any idea?

    just keeps me thinking about strange things,
    I am getting this for over 300 different sites each day.

    I just want to know what makes it happens,
    I have nothing to do with thoese sites!

    are they really point to our servers for any reason or is it kinda script calling or even trying to use open ports for spam and email?


    I appreciate if some one shed a light on it.

    I'm getting a bunch of these also. And they seem to be adding some extra load to the server:

    I am also getting this same thing in my messages log. If anyone knows any explanations of this I would appreciate it as well.

    Thanks.

    Same problem here.

    Very curious why the logs is full with this.

    Even the reverse dns is in there!:confused:

    I think feanor gave the solution already. If you haven't been to above link, go read below [extract from the url above]

    PHP:
    RTFM, or RT-FAQ
    you want
    :        category lame-servers null; };
    as 
    in: /etc/named.conf:

    logging {
    >         
    category notify null; };
    >         
    category lame-servers null; };
    >         
    category cname null; };
    >         
    category response-checks null; };
    > };
    >
    I have tried the above solution on couple of my boxes, it helps to keep your logs down, thats all i can say.

    Open your named.conf inside your favorite editor.

    Now locate the "Options" section. Just after the section is over, add the following:

    PHP:
    logging {
            
    category "lame-servers" {
                    
    "null";
            };
    };
    This will take care of the those lame server messages.
