greetings,
I am trying, very horribly, to begin my knowledge on bind on ubuntu.
I attempted to use this webpage to reference what I need to do.
http://askubuntu.com/questions/330148/how-do-i-do-a-complete-bind9-dns-server-configuration-with-a-hostname

I have 5 servers running.
192.168.1.11  dc.cutlerplace.org  <-- where bind is
192.168.1.12  webserver.cutlerplace.org  <-- where apache will reside (coming soon)
192.168.1.13  mysql.cutlerplace.org  <-- where my database resides (coming soon)
192.168.1.21  hdfs1.cutlerplace.org   <-- studying hadoop (why I need DNS)
192.168.1.22  hdfs2.cutlerplace.org   <-- studying hadoop (why I need DNS)
192.168.1.23  hdfs3.cutlerplace.org   <-- studying hadoop (why I need DNS)

I have setup the following files:
/etc/bind/zones/db.cutlerplace.org
/etc/bind/zones/db.192

for db.cutlerplace.org:
;
; BIND data file for local loopback interface
;
$TTL    604800
@       IN      SOA     dc.cutlerplace.org root.cutlerplace.org (
                              2         ; Serial
                         604800         ; Refresh
                          86400         ; Retry
                        2419200         ; Expire
                         604800 )       ; Negative Cache TTL
;
@       IN      NS      dc
cutlerplace.org. IN NS  dc
cutlerplace.org. IN A  192.168.1.11
;@      IN      A       127.0.0.1
;@      IN      AAAA    ::1
dc      IN      A       192.168.1.11
hdfs1   IN      A       192.168.1.21
hdfs2   IN      A       192.168.1.22
hdfs3   IN      A       192.168.1.23
www     IN     CNAME    cutlerplace.org

Open in new window


for db.192:
;
; BIND reverse data file for local loopback interface
;
$TTL    604800
@       IN      SOA     dc.cutlerplace.org. root.cutlerplace.org. (
                              1         ; Serial
                         604800         ; Refresh
                          86400         ; Retry
                        2419200         ; Expire
                         604800 )       ; Negative Cache TTL
;
@       IN      NS      dc.
1       IN      PTR     gateway.cutlerplac.org.
5       IN      PTR     dc.cutlerplace.org.
21      IN      PTR     hdfs1.cutlerplace.org.
22      IN      PTR     hdfs2.cutlerplace.org.
23      IN      PTR     hdfs3.cutlerplace.org.

Open in new window


I did as the website says, but bind refuses to start.
can anyone help me understand this a bit better?

for the security conscious, my gateway has all ports closed to these internal IPs.

Thanks

When named fails to start, does it log anything in syslog?
Have to go now - will compare with my working little DNS when I get back

Can you help us better understand on this as well but posting the error messages? They should be in /var/log/message.

In db.cutlerplace.org you are missing full stops after dc.cutlerplace.org and root.cutlerplace.org on line 5. You have them on line 5 of db.192.
I would not use "@" as a label. It's a reference to the zone name, but without seeing your named.conf I wouldn't know if it's likely to work. Just put the zone name there instead.
In case that doesn't fix it straight away, I've attached slightly cut_down versions of my configs. Use them as a template and it should "just work".
named.conf.txt
local.net.txt
ten.lacol.txt
