Hi,
I received this email below, what does it mean?

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
The hostname (xxx.xxxx.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 64.191.xx.xx. 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


I ran the "add an A entry" and it said at was added all ok. I also checked my /etc/resolv.conf file and it said this: -

#domain darkorb.net
#search darkorb.net
#nameserver 127.0.0.1
#nameserver 64.191.xx.xx
#nameserver 64.191.xx.xx
nameserver 64.191.0.2

The last 2 # entries are my name servers IP addresses but whats the rest doing in there???

Im also loosing all emails coming into the server as well, any ideas on this to.

Regards,

Brian

The domain and search should be followed by your domain name, not darkorb. The first nameserver (127.0.0.1) is correct. It is the nameserver for localhost. If you change the domain and search all should be well.

Are those #'s in the file? Those should not be in there.

By the way, your ip is in your post unedited.

nameserver 64.191.0.2 Yes but this is NOT my IP?

So how should it look like?

Lost now.

Not your ip? Well, it shouldn't be in there, then.:)

The file should look like:

domain YOURDOMAIN (without the www.)
search YOURDOMAIN (without the www.)
nameserver 127.0.0.1
nameserver YOURNAMESERVER IP
nameserver YOURSECONDNAMESERVERIP (optional)
