    Hey Demminal,

    Not a problem! And thank you! That install guide helped me tremendously. It is noble work you do.

    I actually just wiped the box out and am doing a fresh install. I'm going to add the dns package during install this time and see if that helps me out.

    I think all I need to do is get that split dns thing working and I'll have something to show the bosses next week.

    Thanks

    Hey Demminal,

    One question though:

    Is bind all that different in CentOS5 than in RHEL or FC4?

    Thanks

    I just did some checking around, and I stand corrected. Apparently the bind packages for RHEL5/CentOS5 no longer contain a default named.conf file. So, if you've got all the bind packages installed and you're working on setting up the named.conf file I think you are on the right track. My guess would be that setting up DNS on RHEL5/CentOS5 is not much different the doing so on version 4, the missing named.conf file excepted. Of course I've already been wrong once in this thread, so maybe someone with actual version 5 experience can verify.

    Default Centos 5 Dns

    The DNS on Centos 5 is pretty much standard
    i run two public DNS servers on Centos 5 running Bind with the cpplus panel installed to make adding records for customers quick and easy.

    and they run just the same as the trustix 2.2 that we used to use.

    why dont you setup seperate dns servers why do you need dns running on the mail server?

    Thank you im glad you found my guide helpfull

    Hi,

    Dang! I did a reinstall overnight. It's good experience though. It'll be interesting to see if spell works this time!

    Demminal, I need to setup split dns on the machine because it's nat'ed behind a firewall. I had setup the free version of ZIMBRA on FC4 and the Wiki on split dns configuration worked perfectly to solve my mail delivery problems.

    I am gonna go ahead and make my own files today and see if that works.

    There is a directory for bind called:

    usr/share/doc/bind-9.3.3/sample/etc/

    That has a named.conf and rndc.conf, another file that wasn't where I would've expected.

    Maybe I can just copy those where needed?

    Thanks!

    Woo Hoo!

    Oh Yeah!

    Uh Huh, Uh Huh, Uh Huh!

    I got it going again!

    I'm starting to get the hang of this!

    OK, I think it was a actually a combination of pure luck AND going back thru all helpful posts full of pointers you gave me on the chroot horrors I experienced on the fc4 install again.

    I created those files where they were missing, fired up named and mail started to be delivered internally.

    Now I stand a chance of having something to show on the 22nd! I do need to figure out the Outlook connector but it's already 8 PM. Even worse, I work in the Central time zone and live in the Eastern time zone so it's already 9 PM at home, which is about an hour away!

    Thanks again for your input!

    I never let a sanity check go by!

    search "centos5 named.conf system-config-bind " on google
    there many posts on centos forum
    basically:
    1. A default named.conf caching nameserver configuration is no long supplied by default. RHEL5 is also set up that way and it is not a bug.
    2. Install system-config-bind and run it.

    system-config-bind will setup *everything* like a charm; then create your zones using it or do it manually

    i hope this may help
