Hi All

I have two zones

lipsum.com
stg.lipsum.com


within the zone file lipsum.com I have an a-record that is "stg IN A 192.168.100.23"

when i do a dig for that record it returns nothing, is this because I also have an actual zone named stg.lipsum.com?

set the A record within the delegated zones file and retest. As the zone is delegated I dont think the root domain would be responsible for that record.

@Aegil,

I though about that, but then it would be "stg.stg.lipsum.com"

so in the qa1.lipsum.com bind zone file. I created an A-record called...

qa1.lipsum.com. IN A 192.1.1.1

I was originally doing "qa1 IN A 192.1.1.1"

That seemed to work...
