need explanation of named.conf and named.rfc1912.zones
Posted on 2008-11-04
Hi, in my dns server under /var/named/chroot/etc/ there are 2 files
named.conf and named.rfc1912.zones.
Now i have create my own internal zone which is example.local.zone and its located /var/named/chroot/var/named/
now my question is :
if i insert zone information in named.conf file then all the internal pc can do dns query for internal network, but Dns server it slef is unable .[ host workshop - it wil fail]
if i delete example.local.zone from named.conf and i insert it to named.rfc1912.zone then dns server can query for internal network but internal pc is unable to query for any internal pc such as : host workshop [ it will fail]
so for the solution , i have included example.local.zone information on both named.conf and named.rfc1912.zone file, so both server and client pc can query about internal network
but i am sure its not the way to work with!!
can any one point me out on this issue ??
