    Hi there, my first thread ;)

    I found a strange CNAME error when adding it with a DNS manager.

    If I remember correctly and I do (cause I'm a system engineer for some time now) when you add CNAME it should look like this in table:

    example IN CNAME some-A-record

    but when adding it via DNS manager it looks like this
    example IN CNAME some-A-record.


    because of that dot at the end the cnaming doesn't work, any hints anyone, I really don't want to mannualy edit the tables aging - I have more then 50 domains to edit, and they have a lot of CNAME-s whic become frustrating cause everytime I edit anything in this zone every CNAME record get's a dot at the end.

    Thank you in advance, Josip

    and I'm using ISPconfig 2.2.0

    A cname should be done that way (in the bind conf file) - for example for the domain

    www IN CNAME
    subdomain IN CNAME
    another IN CNAME

    ISPconfig adds the dot automatically at the end of a FQDN.

    you didn't understand me quite well

    you see that applies for full naming,
    but if you do it like this:
    ftp IN CNAME server1
    and not like this: IN CNAME

    then the dot is not allowed at the end of a file...

    Can you agree with that?:confused:

    You must use FQDNs (e.g. instead of server1).

    Thank you

    thank you falko....

    I hope they will add this posibility soon because I really don't like to go trough 50 domains rewriting it all again....

    but thanks for it...
