DNS & Resolv.conf

Feb 15, 2007

I'm supposed to be completing a server migration on Saturday night. But I have one teeeeny tiny problem....

I have no DNS/nameservers provided by my new DC for the resolv.conf.

They have them - but I don't think they operate like true root nameservers or something. I keep getting a ton of Unroutable Mail Domain errors for server email that should be leaving the new box.

When the resolv.conf was set to use the 4.2.2.x dns servers - it was working fine.
And I don't know if it's ok to just keep it using those or not?...

What other DNS servers can I use for the resolv.conf? Any DC's nameservers? Are there "public" ones available somewhere?

I have a new VPS server in which I did not configure the /etc/resolv.conf file. My VPS has three domains that are all working and resolving fine. But I keep getting an email from my provider that says this:

The hostname (v6.volumedr.com) resolves to. It should resolve to xx.xx.xx.xx. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.

Some are all of these problems can be caused by
/etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if youbelieve everything else is correct.

You may be able to automaticly correct this problem by using the Add an A entry for your hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' in your Web Host Manager.

Why does the actual server hostname need to resolve via dns?

I have confirmed that /etc/hosts looks good and I added an A record in my WHM for each domain. Do I need to configure the /etc/resolv.conf file too? Do I need to list my three domains and my server hostname(v8) and then my two primary DNS servers?

Is it better to put the IP of your server on the first line followed by the dns servers from the datacenter? And, how do you make the changes go in effect? I assume you just restart bind?

Etc/resolv.conf - Secondary Ns

May 20, 2008

My sites all respond very slow (VPS) at the initial loading, that's why I try to check all dns settings.

My current resolv.conf
that is the ns of my hosting provider.

Would I have an advantage if I add another and if so can I simply add my own nameservers?

/etc/resolv.conf Rotate

Sep 16, 2007

how to set up /etc/resolv.conf to use the rotate option.

I've tried:
options rotate
options timeout:2
nameserver X.X.X.X
nameserver X.X.X.X

Yes using NSLOOKUP and DIG both always return results from the first name server if it is up (no rotation) and when it is down, the timeout is the default 5 seconds (not the 2 that I specified) before going to the second name server.

My current resolv.conf looks like this:

DNS Issues Rndc.conf & Named.conf

Apr 8, 2009

It started with this error:

Bind reloading on server01 using rndc zone: [ns1.mydomain.net]
Error reloading bind on server01: rndc: connect failed: connection refused

so i did the obvious checked the csf firewall to see if port 953 was enabled and it was

so i took a look at rndc.conf

root@server01 [~]# nano /etc/rndc.conf
#start of rndc.conf
key "rndc-key" {
algorithm hmac-md5;
secret "KLGSBmWZrev0I4fR4Tm4GXxdcYSTFzF23b1f9is1M=";

options {
default-key "rndc-key";
default-port 953;
# End of rndc.conf

# Use with the following in named.conf, adjusting the allow list as needed:
#key "rndc-key" {
# algorithm hmac-md5;
# secret "KLGSBmWZrev0I4fR4Tm4GXxdcYSTFzF23b1f9is1M=";
# controls {
# inet port 953
# allow {; } keys { "rndc-key"; };
# };
# End of named.conf
Then i took a look at named.conf

options {
/* make named use port 53 for the source of all queries, to allow
* firewalls to block all ports except 53:

//query-source port 53;

/* We no longer enable this by default as the dns posion exploit
has forced many providers to open up their firewalls a bit */

// Put files that named is allowed to write in the data/ directory:
directory "/var/named"; // the default
pid-file "/var/run/named/named.pid";
dump-file "data/cache_dump.db";
statistics-file "data/named_stats.txt";
/* memstatistics-file "data/named_mem_stats.txt"; */

logging {
/* If you want to enable debugging, eg. using the 'rndc trace' command,
* named will try to write the 'named.run' file in the $directory (/var/named").
* By default, SELinux policy does not allow named to modify the /var/named" directory,
* so put the default debug log file in data/ :
channel default_debug {
file "data/named.run";
severity dynamic;

// All BIND 9 zones are in a "view", which allow different zones to be served
// to different types of client addresses, and for options to be set for groups
// of zones.
// By default, if named.conf contains no "view" clauses, all zones are in the
// "default" view, which matches all clients.
// If named.conf contains any "view" clause, then all zones MUST be in a view;
// so it is recommended to start off using views to avoid having to restructure
// your configuration files in the future.

view "localhost_resolver" {
/* This view sets up named to be a localhost resolver ( caching only nameserver ).
* If all you want is a caching-only nameserver, then you need only define this view:
match-clients {; };
match-destinations { localhost; };
recursion yes;

zone "." IN {
type hint;
file "/var/named/named.ca";

/* these are zones that contain definitions for all the localhost
* names and addresses, as recommended in RFC1912 - these names should
* ONLY be served to localhost clients:
include "/var/named/named.rfc1912.zones";

Apr 17, 2007

I would like to set some hard limits for some developmental testing I am doing using quota tools and what not. In limits.conf I have the following:

@dev hard cpu 0.30

As far as I can see, this would limit all users in the group "dev" from using more than half a minute of CPU time, am I correct?

Assuming I am, once I write these changes no limits seem to be enforced. Are these values cached in the memory and a reboot is needed for them to take effect?

Httpd.conf To Set My Virtualhosts

Nov 1, 2009

I always used httpd.conf to set my virtualhosts and it worked perfect. Untill now.

All domains I point to my IP get's pointed to first virtual host folder. And it doesnt care about other settings. My config:

<VirtualHost *>
ServerSignature Off
ServerAlias omgwtf.com
ServerAdmin rytis@s.lt
DocumentRoot /var/www
ServerName blahblah.com
Options -Indexes

<VirtualHost *>
ServerSignature Off
ServerAlias blahblah.com
ServerAdmin rytis@z.lt
DocumentRoot /var/www/epo
ServerName blahblah.com
Options -Indexes

And it doesnt care about that I set xyz.com to /var/www/epo, it just loads /var/epo.

I have restarted apache.

I notice new version 3.33 has new function such as synflood and so on, can someone tell me if I need to change any settings inside my csf.conf other than disabling the testing = 0 on a fresh new cpanel server?

FreeBSD Make.conf

Sep 19, 2008

I was playing with a backup machine I have today. It's been running FreeBSD 6.3 a while now. I just realised today that CPUTYPE in make.conf was set wrong. When I set it to what it should be, according to the list of valid values, I got odd errors during world and kernel rebuilds, along with some from some ports. I googled it and found many people do not suggest setting that directive in make.conf. May I ask if anybody has experience with this, and what impact it would have on my box should I remove the directive and recompile?

Subdomains With Vhost.conf

Sep 15, 2008

I'm trying to accomplish a redirect (or rewrite) of [url]to [url]

* I got DNS *.domain.com correctly pointing to my server.
* I also created a vhost.conf inside /var/www/vhosts/domain.com/conf, and Plesk (/var/www/vhosts/domain.com/conf/httpd.include) is correctly including the file.
* even though I don't know if it's needed or not, I created in Plesk a new CNAME with value *.domain.com pointing to domain.com

in my vhost.conf I got:

ServerAlias *.domain.com
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.domain.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+).domain.com
RewriteRule (.*) /temp/%1/$1 [L]

when I try whatever.domain.com, I'm getting a 500 Internal Server Error.
