    Post Error during resolving the mx record for hostname and domain name

    Please help me out....I m trying to install ZCS on Fedora 11
    Before installation I configured named.conf as follows
    // Default named.conf generated by install of bind-9.2.4-2
    options {
    directory "/var/named";
    dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
    statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    forwarders { 192.168.0.110 ; };
    };
    include "/etc/rndc.key";
    // We are the master server for server.example.com
    zone "mail.example.com" {
    type master;
    file "db.mail.example.com";
    };

    and then created db.mail.example.com in var/named/ as follows

    ;
    ; Addresses and other host information.
    ;
    @ IN SOA mail.example.com. root.mail.example.com. (
    10118 ; Serial
    43200 ; Refresh
    3600 ; Retry
    3600000 ; Expire
    2592000 ) ; Minimum
    ; Define the nameservers and the mail servers
    IN NS mail.example.com
    IN A 192.168.0.20
    IN MX 10 mail.example.com.

    and then started named.conf successfully........

    i got DNS error during installation saying that NO mx Records for locahost
    and asked me to enter a new hostname but that to didnt work....the error i got is as follows

    You need to have a valid hosts file, resolv.conf file and DNS A & MX records that point to your server. I'd suggest you read the Quick Start Installation Guide for the format of the hosts file. There are many posts (by me) in the forums that describe what you need to do and what information you need to post, please search for them.
