"The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname"


Mar 6, 2005
Hello guys, I was wondering if you could help me with a little problem that I have.

I have had this message twice now, and I am not sure that the server should actually resolve to Shouldn't it resolve to it's main IP address?

It is a VPS account hosted on a virtuzzo system if that helps.

The email is as follows:


IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
The hostname (vps311.nozonenet.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 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


Help would be greatly appreciated.
