I've got my own primary and secondary name servers running and all my ip's are resolving correctly.  nslookup functions just fine but I can't get my sendmail to recognize domains.  I get the following error:

Returned mail: Host unknown (Name server: targetdomain.com.: no data known)

what does that mean?  I've got the MX records in the named daemon configured.  what am I missing?

Thanks!

Hi,

I had the same problem, solved it with a new line in the dns files, made an alias domain.com that pointed to server.domain.com
So if i nslookup to domain.com i see server.domain.com, and it works :-)

Try it

Can you be just a little more specific please?  Which config files did you alter?  named.boot, the db file or the reverse lookup file?

Thanks.
