    Arrow Can someone validate that this DNS output is correct?

    Here's the output of "dig mail.petrallcorp.com"
    is it correct?
    should I see a MX entry?
    My ISP was called to do the mod and I was wondering if it propogated yet.
    My servername is mail.petrallcorp.com


    do i need to do a dog petrallcorp.com or dig mail.petrallcorp.com?


    thanks timg

    No, that output is not correct - the fact that all the statements in the output have a ';' in front of them indicates there' nothing reported. You need to do a 'dig petrallcorp.com' if that's your domain name.

    No, it doesn't look like they've added it yet. Or it might be added and perhaps they only restart their DNS servers at certain intervals throughout the day.

    I did:

    dig a petrallcorp.com
    dig mx petrallcorp.com
    dig a mail.petrallcorp.com

    Those should show the 'a' and 'mx' records for those hostnames.

    Have a good one,

    ya you have no "answer" or "authority" replies for either section

    http://pingability.com/zoneinfo.jsp?...etrallcorp.com
    you essentially have no dns records anywhere
    pinging returns 'unknown host'

    Arrow OK does this look better?

    Below is the output of 3 commands...

    1 dig mx petrallcorp.com
    2 dig a petrallcorp.com
    3 dig a mail.petrallcorp.com

    Do these look good?

    $ nslookup mail.petrallcorp.com
    Name: mail.petrallcorp.com
    Address: 24.97.112.36
    if your actual zimbra server is there
    and I see your using A names (no CNAMES)
    -much better

    not putting anything at your main domain right now?:
    $ nslookup petrallcorp.com
    *** Can't find petrallcorp.com: No answer
