Folks

Probably an obvious one but for the liffe of me I can't seem to figure it out.

Here is my zone file:

----
$TTL 14400
@     IN      SOA     ns.sunapsis.ch.    domainadmin.sunapsis.ch. (
                  20090405001      ; Serial
                  3600            ; Refresh
                  360            ; Retry
                  1209600      ; Expire
                  3600 )      ; Min TTL
                       

ns.sunapsis.ch. IN A 88.191.98.49
ns1.sunapsis.ch. IN A 88.191.98.49

sunapsis.ch.      IN      A      88.191.98.49

      IN      NS         ns.sunapsis.ch.
      IN         NS      ns1.sunapsis.ch.
      IN      NS      ns2.mydyndns.org.
      IN      NS      ns3.mydyndns.org.
      IN      NS      ns4.mydyndns.org.
      IN      NS      ns5.mydyndns.org.

      IN      MX      10      aspmx.l.google.com.
      IN      MX      20      alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.
      IN      MX      30      alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.

mail.sunapsis.ch.   IN  CNAME ghs.google.com.
sites.sunapsis.ch.  IN  CNAME ghs.google.com.
docs.sunapsis.ch.   IN  CNAME ghs.google.com.
calendar.sunapsis.ch. IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
www.sunapsis.ch.  IN  CNAME ghs.google.com.
test.sunapsis.ch.      IN       A  88.191.48.160

google88fa92513f744f01.sunapsis.ch.     IN      CNAME   google.com.
-----

Everything works fine except that test.sunapsis.ch doesn't resolve (host not found).

Any idea ?

Regards

Hi,

Where is this test.sunapsis.ch.  pointing to? Is it some other server? Can you access this other server through the IP address?

When did you update the DNS zone file? Usually 24 hrs are required for complete DNS propagation.

Hello

> Where is this test.sunapsis.ch.  pointing to? Is it some other server?

Yes - different machine up & running

> When did you update the DNS zone file? Usually 24 hrs are required for complete DNS propagation.

Doesn't work even when forcing to resolve on the local server...

alex@ns-server:~$ host test.sunapsis.ch localhost
Using domain server:
Name: localhost
Address: 127.0.0.1#53
Aliases:

Host test.sunapsis.ch not found: 2(SERVFAIL)

Something fishy with my server, although other requests seem to work just fine...

To update, I can access "http://88.191.48.160". Which means that the DNS is not propagated. Wait for 24-36 hours for complete DNS propagation.

You can restarting the named service. This way any error in the zone file will be shown on the screen.
