    Hey guys, I did the forum search and read the documentation but I have an issue with making my server a name server using WHM - have not been able to connect to irc due to firewall at work.

    Here is what I have done

    bought a new domain name to alow old and new server to be online (www.gpulseserver.com)
    had network solutions set up new domain as name server
    verified who is shows this new name server

    set up ns1.gpulseserver.com
    set up ns2.gpulseserver.com
    created a host name

    switched 2 of my previous sites over to the new nameserver dns records

    -------------------

    no names work - here is what I get

    all ip's work
    a domain name does not work
    if i ping the name of the domain it says host unknown
    if i ping the name server name i get host unknown

    when I look in show IP address Usage I get all the domains I set up listed except the name server names

    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    --------------------

    enabling the domain I get the following

    Name Server Activated
    Activating nameserver monitoring
    Stopping chkservd: [ OK ]
    Starting chkservd: [ OK ]
    Starting Nameserver
    Attempting to restart bind

    debug level: 0
    xfers running: 0
    xfers deferred: 0
    soa queries in progress: 0
    query logging is OFF
    server is up and running

    bind started ok

    Goto http://www.dnsreport.com and see what it says for each domain.

    Also note that new nameservers at the registrar can take upto 5 days to propogate properly and it can take upto 72 hours for domain nameserver changes to propogate properly.

    Thanks man - 1 question if possible

    I run a dns check there on gpulseserver.com and got tons of fail errors - everything from:

    lame servers
    missing name server 2

    it has been about 38 hours since the domain was bought and registered as a name server - could I just be jumping the gun and not allowing it enough time or could it be a bigger issue?

    Possibly, try from your server to do the following;

    dig @127.0.0.1 gpulseserver.com

    You should get the zone info. I tried to get to you from our server but your nameservers do not respond.

    Also verify in WHM &Server Setup & Edit Setup
    That you have the primary and secondary info inputted correctly. Also make sure Master nameserver is empty
    Confirm that there are A records for the nameservers.

    Hope this helps a little

    Thanks

    confirmed all the appropriate entires and a records for all the name servers, verified the spots that should remain blank and all came back like it should.

    It has been 48 hours since all the registration took place so I guess my eagerness has gotten the best of me and i need to chill out till the 5 day mark passes before jumping in there and trying to change anything that might not need to be changed. ;)

    Don't worry, I thought I had one added.... I don't.
