hi

- resolv.conf is ok
- domain dahu.tv and loisir.tv
- redhat 7.1

when i try to add the subdomain in the cpanel it still answer the same error (SubDomain Adder
ndc: get key definition: not found marmotte.dahu.tv could not be modified because it does not resolve to a valid ip address. Please ask the system admin to check their resolv.conf and their dns trust relationship Ignore any messages of success this can only result in failure!) , and it don\'t list the new subdomain in the cpanel menu but add the correct line in the edit DNS zone for dahu.tv


i done a search on my side i compare the httpd.conf.prev and httpd.conf

as i hoped, httpd.conf.prev contain the last config when i have added the marmotte subdomain to dahu.tv with succes (i have delete dahu.tv account and recreated it because DNS pb that are solved now)

i think that it may be come from a bug in the new version of cpanel because in the comparison of the 2 files it seems show it .
From the build 127 to 158
may be between 155 and 158

- I have put manualy in the httpd.conf a new <virtualhost> </virtualhost> for the subdomain marmotte.dahu.tv
- then marmotte.dahu.tv was reachable
- marmotte is show in the cpanel subdomain menu
- Then i tried to add with cpanel the subdomain chambery: success: Cpanel accept it, show it, creat the correct directory in the ftp,add the correct virtual host tag in the httpd.conf BUT don\'t upgrade the edit dahutv dns zone

- Then i tried to add with cpanel menu a subdomain to loisir.tv : Failed: cpanel give the same error, don\'t show it, don\'t creat the directory , don\'t add it in the httpd.conf , BUT add the correct line in the edit DNS zone of loisir.tv

My conclusion are: Cpanel script is looking for 2 things (X and Y) :

For dahutv: he found the X and add the correct Dir, <VirtualHost>, and cpanel is happy , BUT don\'t find the Y and fail to add the subdomain in the DNS dahutv zone

For loisir.tv: He found the Y and add the subdomain in the DNS loisirtv zone BUT don\'t find the X and fail to creat Dir, <VirtualHost> and cpanel is unhappy

Just have to find what is X and Y :)

Im a newbie, i don\'t understand ... im gonna be mad :)

Sorry for my english, and i hope it will help you , and then , me :)

resolv.conf is probably NOT ok.

if you have 127.0.0.1, take it out.

Make sure that instead of 127.0.0.1, you have the IP address of your server instead.

Michael,[quote:6e9b07907b]Make sure that instead of 127.0.0.1, you have the IP address of your server instead. [/quote:6e9b07907b]If named resides on the same machine as the web server, why would you prefer to put the IP address in resolv.conf instead of 127.0.0.1? ;)

It is not so much that I prefer it, but I have found that in doing this alteration, the problems that dahu is experiencing will go away. This has happened to our first server, and when I tried the IP address of the server in resolv.conf, it worked fine.

replacing nameserver 127.0.0.1 by nameserver Myserverip doesn\'t work...

but after many try, i find that if i let an account subdomain to disable (no * 14400 A IP in the named file), then, i can add subdomain by the way of cpanel, and it add correctly the directory, <virtualhost> in httpd.conf, etc... but don\'t add the subdomain in the edite dns zone. And the subdomain is working fine, reachable.

And if i enable subdomain with WHM, i can\'t add with cpanel

so , just a question, is it important a subdomain is not added in the edit dns zone (named db file), in the domain named file ? Because it seems to work without so ...
