    Dns Ispconfig3 assistance

    I know i have the option to use provider for DNS records,I have been using them so far for all mine sub domain/ mx. What I do want is to use DNS build in ispconfig3.
    Now I know i have to add custom NS.
    Custom NS registers mine domain DNS with registrar.
    Ones registered do i also need to change the primary and secondary servers from registrar default to mine custom that i just added.And if I only have one dns server(the one build in ISPconfi3 do I just keep using the second one from mine registrar defaults? Or do i make some sort of Cname for secondary (fake) or do I keep the defaults and add more DNS server with the registrar defaults?

    I know it will all take up to 4 days to become usable.As is takes time to propagate.Is there way to speed this up?So testing can be done instantly or least faster?

    I would like to understand DNS that is why i would not use registrar DNS records.Just another think to figure out.Love it.

    So thanx to all tinkers and geeks for reply.

    advantages of ispconfig3dns:

    i would think that any changes to dns ins ispconfig3 will be instant.
    Name server caries your domain instead third party.
    All configuration related to the server is in one location.
    Experience and understanding ho the stuff works hands on.

    hi all,
    i didnt understand, what a meaning "allow zone transfer to these IP" form in first images above. Is it zone transfer to slave DNS?

  8. falko

    falko Super Moderator ISPConfig Developer

    Yes, it's the zone transfer to the slave DNS server.

    just make sure your answer since i new in ispconfig..
    if i had :
    primary server act as : 111.222.333.1
    slave server act as : 111.222.333.2
    then at that form i write : 111.222.333.2 right ?

    i'm looking for this discussion for solve my problem, but nothing.

    I have two server:

    Server 1 : IspConfig 3, Mydns. (Master DNS)
    Server 2 : Bind9 (Slave server)

    Both on Amazon whit unblocked port 20,21,22,53,953,80,Icmp etc....

    I do syncro my 50-60 (1-2 for day) domain name from ispConfig panel to Bind and i not completely understand the real step that make the system.

    When i add a domain with the wizard, mydns make the autotransfer AXFR or only with manual adding of ZONE on complete the field AXFR?

    I'm looking for solution, i found many tutorial about transfer zone from MyDns and
    Bind but the transfer happen only when the required zone is write manually in config file named.conf in the slave server.
    At restarting the service the transfer is completed.

    What is the best procedure for optimizing my situation?

    Is correct to change MyDns with Bind ? What benefit could I get?

    Is Bind that connect to server Master for copy Zones or IspConfig (Mydns) send information to Bind?

    The port 53 are 953 are correct?

    Sorry for my english and my many questions, but is a week the no solve my problem.

    The zone transfer should happen automatically. Are there any named errors in the syslog on the slave?
  17. mixian

    mixian New Member

    No. No error.
    At this point, I should switch to IspConfig 3 and syncronize the zone with rSync.
    This is a good solution ?

    The problem is that you have not installed ispconfig on the slave, which means that you currently have to configure a slave zone in bind on the slave manually for every domain.

    ISPConfig 3 has a builtin synchronistaion feature, this requires that you install ispconfig 3 on the slave server too in expert mode and choose to join the master. You should select "no" when the installer asks you if you want to install a interface on the slave. Then login to ispconfig on the master, go to the server settings for the slave server and select that this server shall mirror the master. ISPConfig will then mirror all configuration settings incl. the bind configuration automatically to the slave.

    Ok.Till. Thanks.

    I try to install ipsconfig on the slave in expert mode.

    But myDns should be installed with option "--without-mysql" ?

    I work with zendserver CE and i have problem for compile it with mysql-zend-server.

    I should be use also an istallation of postgresql on the slave and mysql on the master ? It's bad solution ?

    You have either to use mydns with mysql (without mysql will not work!) or BIND. postgresql is not supported.
