Subject: question about structure


If I have the following structure:

aa.usmc.mil NS ns1.aa.usmc.mil

aa.usmc.mil NS ns2.aa.usmc.mil

aa.usmc.mil SOA ns1.aa.usmc.mil

aa.usmc.mil MX exch.usmc.mil

ns1 A 222.222.222.1

ns2 A 222.222.222.2

exch A 222.222.222.3

www CNAME exch.aa.usmc.mil



For this scenario exch is exchange and iis.

Is ther any way I can have

http://www.yqcomputer.com/ < http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ; and have it resolve to the iis
server exch

TIA

These records don't all go in the same zone file you know, yes? The
NS and glue records go in the zone file for usmc.mil and the rest go
in the zone file for aa.usmc.mil.


You have to have it resolve to the address rather than the name
(i.e. use an A record not a CNAME record) but otherwise yes. Be aware
that DNS has no knowledge of http, so the "http://" parts of what you
specified above are not relevant to DNS.

My zone file is aa.usmc.mil and has all these,
Then I have 222.222.222.in-addr.arpa with the PTR records

How do you mean, I am using windows NT DNS.

Usmc.mil
aa.usmc.mil ns1....
aa.usmc.mil ns2....
aa.usmc.mil SOA
aa.usmc.mil MX
then
aa.usmc.mil
ns1 a xxx
ns2 a xxx
exch a xxxx
www a ????

In article <c9l5ir$2ugh$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Then why are you asking in the BIND newsgroup/list?

A *copy* of the NS and associated glue records needs to present in the
parent zone. But you need NS/A records in the child zone. Actually, you
need NS records at the apex of *every* zone, or BIND won't load it. And
of course you need A records for every name referenced by an NS record,
which may or may not need to be present in the same zonefile, depending
on the name.

But won't this entry cause a conflist with the "domain" name of
aa.usmc.mil??

aa.usmc.mil. a 222.222.222.3
TIA

So when I add the last entry a web user will be able to use aa.usmc.mil and
that will not conflict with the dns domain or MX record for aa.usmc.mil

TIA

In article <c9mucm$1pnt$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



No. A name having an SOA record doesn't prevent it from having other
records. Isn't it common to have MX records for domain names? Why do
you think A records are any different?

Probably because he should be running BIND on NT for the military.
