    I installed ISPconfig on suse 10 (64 bit) with perfect setup.
    The server is online with public IP.
    I see my webpage but if I try ping I get "unknown host"
    I have 1 IP for the machine, 1 IP for NS1 and 1 IP for NS2. They are all public IP.
    I added these IP in network card and also in ISPconfig under Management -> Server -> Settings -> tab Server IP list
    In tab DNS -> Default NS1 I added my IP for ns1 (and for ns2)
    Under DNS Manager I created the RECORD A (hostname - IP address my public IP for DNS)
    I created the record A for ns1 and ns2 but I cannot ping ns1 neither ns2
    where is my error? :confused:
    I need to ping and because I need to host several domain on this server, I try to register 1 domain but I failed because of this error of ns1 and ns2

    Can you post the real domain name here?
    I guess your ISPConfig server is not authoritative for the domain, therefore you must create the DNS records for the domain on another DNS server.

    Ok, the authoritative name servers for are and so you must create the DNS records there. I guess one of these is running ISPconfig?

    Don't enter an IP address there! You must use an FQDN there.

    Now i ping and but I still am not able to register the I get this error:
    "Unable to verify the A record associated to the NS server NS1.WADNET.ORG" and I get the same error at dnsreport : "No NS A records at nameservers"

    In DNS MANAGER for the domain I created A record hostname - IP my public IP for dns (also for

    So I think that the required a records must be create in server setting but I don't know where .....

    If you change something in DNS, it may take up to 4´8 hours until your changes where propagated to all DNS servers.
