I have got my main IP setup with rDNS (server.mainwebsite.com). When I do host IP, it resolves properly in a ssh session.

However, I have a separate domain, with it's own dedicated IP on the same box. But after doing the same setup as I did for the main IP, I get "Not Found 3 (NXDOMAIN)"

I am unsure where I am going wrong or what I am missing?

Did you check if the reverse DNS is working ? Does IP points back to domain name ?

What does the below command show ?

[[email protected] ~]$ host domain.com

To see if the PTR is setup properly for the IP, the right way to check would be the following:

Code:
dig -x +short IP#
Please replace the IP# in the command with the dedicated IP address.

If you don't receive a return to show it has anything setup, you'll need to contact whoever provided the IP to ask them to setup a PTR record for the IP.
