I have a mac server setup doing mail and some sharing. It acts also as the primary DNS server for this setup. I didn't originally set this up, but there is only 1 DNS record that I see in the server with a PTR record 220.127.116.11.in-addr.arpa. Reverse Zone - 10.1.1.2 Reverse Mapping servername.domain.com. servername.domain.com. Primary Zone - servername.domain.com. Machine 10.1.1.2 Thats my attempt at showing what server manager in DNS is showing. It would appear there is one A record for the server and a PTR record to match. Makes sense. I want to add a record for another server. I want newserver or newserver.domain.com to resolve to 10.1.1.6. So, I added an A record and put in newserver.domain.com. and an IP of 10.1.1.6 In turn it addes an A record, but it adds a new PTR record so my entries now look like: 1.1.10.in-addr.arpa. Reverse Zone - 10.1.1.6 Reverse Mapping newserver.domain.com. 18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa. Reverse Zone - 10.1.1.2 Reverse Mapping servername.domain.com. servername.domain.com. Primary Zone - servername.domain.com. Machine 10.1.1.2 newserver.domain.com. Machine 10.1.1.6 I'm questioning if this is right? I thought this would be an easy process, am I doing something wrong? When I ping 10.1.1.6 it doesn't resolve the name and when I ping newserver or newserver.domain.com I get back unresolved messages. Any help would be super appreciated!!!!!!!
