    Hello,

    We just moved from Red Hat 9 to Trustix 2.0 es.

    I've received any eMail from the server

    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (srv1.omtools.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 65.183.204.254. 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.


    You may be able to
    automaticly correct this problem by using the ' Add an A entry for your
    hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' in your Web Host Manager

    ----

    When I attempt to Add an A entry for the hostname (from whm) it says

    IP=65.183.204.254 Bind reloading on srv1 using rndc zone: [omtools.com] Error reloading bind on srv1: rndc: 'reload' failed: not found Add Complete

    -----

    any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Our CPanel has been changing our /etc/hosts file so the hostname points to the wrong IP address. It keeps doing this every day for the past week every time we fix it - it undoes it. This is very annoying, and I assume it is a new bug in Cpanel.

    Hi,
    I am also receiving a daily email, since upgrading to Cpanel 9.9.8-R160:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ipcheck] Problems with dns setup on server.mydomain.com

    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (server.mydomain.com) resolves to . It should resolve to xxx.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.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Env:
    WHM 9.9.8
    Cpanel 9.9.8-R160
    Redhat 7.3 i686

    /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx server.mydomain.com server

    /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver yy.yyy.yyy.yy
    nameserver zz.zz.z.zz

    /etc/hosts, /etc/resolv.conf and the 'A' entry in zone file are correct.
    Any help would be appreciated
