    Default Is this an error in the documentation ? (split DNS)

    from this page: Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki

    // Default named.conf generated by install of bind-9.2.4-2
    options {
    directory "/var/named";
    dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
    statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    forwarders {
    ; };
    };
    include "/etc/rndc.key";
    // We are the master server for server.example.com
    zone "server.example.com" {
    type master;
    file "db.server.example.com";
    };
    The zone is server.example.com instead of example.com.

    I installed Zimbra on another server (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS this time) and I cant even start the installation because of the infamous "Please fix your /etc/hosts file" problem.

    I already made all the split DNS setup but still no luck.

    Everything works fine on this server now.

    There are lot of errors and things missing on every "How to" guides I found for the Split-dns/Ubuntu 10.04 LTS installations.

    Im going to make another one I will post it here when its done.

    Take a look at my notes on how I configured my DNS. It is letter-for-letter how I setup my Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS server and it is working great.

    Just like you, I had to look at several articles to figure out what's what. Not because the articles are lacking, they tend to favor a particular flavor of Linux or version or version of utilities or just how you decide to set it up...which there are typically many ways. In my example, the exact same software and DNS configuration may not work for another company because of how their network is designed / configured. To me, the most useful articles are those that "explain" why things are done the way they are so we can figure out how to tailor that information to a specific scenario.

    Link fixed. FYI - I just re-published a new thread documenting the same thing on Ubuntu 10.04.4 and Zimbra 7.2.0...although the DNS section is almost identical.

    Type su - zimbra -c "zmcontrol -v" to get your version and copy that into your profile (more info here)
