    For about the past month I've been getting this automated email repeatedly:

    ======================================
    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (host.domain.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 11.111.111.11. 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
    ======================================

    After I log into my WHM after receiving this email I get a pop-up which asks if I'd like it to try to add the entry manually, which I've tried and it seems to work for a while but starts all over again after about a day.

    Here's what I've got going:

    WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0-R18033
    FEDORA 1 i686 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1.0

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Adam

    add a DNS entry for the hostname to the ip address from inside your whm. also make sure that the entry at /etc/hosts for the hostname is correct:

    11.111.111.11 host.domain.com
    -----------------------------------------------------

    also add an entry for the subdomain host.domain.com inside the db file for domain.com; and the warning should not repeat. i have explained all the methods, but usually adding a DNS entry for the hostname inside the server will help.
