    Default split dns on ubuntu 10.04 lts 64 bit

    Since i am on a virtual machine I am using a private address for my soon to be zimbra network edtion 7.1.4. The hypervisor has shorewall installed and is forwarding ports to the Zimbra virtual machine. I have followed the wiki page to the letter with the following exception i am using mx1 for hostname instead of mail becuase the ISP already has the PTR records setup for me at mx1. I have tried both bind and dnsmasq but i cannot get zimbra to install without dns error

    DNS ERROR resolving MX for mx1.MYDOMAIN.ca
    It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in

    DNS

    I guess i prefer bind becuase i have used it before however i am not opposed to dnsmasq. My bind setup that has errors and dig output is below CAPS are subsitutions please help. Clearly this is not coming from the local nameserver that i have installed

    It makes no difference what the ISP has the PTR record set as, the DNS on your LAN is totally independent of other external DNS servers.

    That isn't an error, at this point you should change the domain name you "yourdomain.com" otherwise it will assume you want the domain to be "mx1.MYDOMAIN.ca".

    You resolv.conf should only contain the IP address of the DNS server on your LAN. The entry in your hosts file for the loopback adapter is also incorrect, it should look like this:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
