What are all the possible causes of the “An Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for the domain …” error message?
Earlier I was having issues connecting one of my workstations (client) to my domain, and I thought it was because the domain was not in my possession yet (reference: this question). But, due to the answer I’m led to believe that there is something else going on? I’ve searched the internet and can’t really find out why I’m still having issues, so I figured I’d ask to see what the possible causes of this error [...]Continue Reading »
I’m trying to do something I thought would be pretty simple. Mapping local.mydomain.com to 192.168.0.1 using my registrar’s DNS server.(namecheap.com) I’ve added an A Record for local with value of 192.168.0.1 trying to lookup local.mydomain.com using websites like just-dnslookup.com returns the proper IP address. but trying to ping or nslookup in windows results in these errors. Ping: Ping request could not find host local.mydomain.com. Please check the name and try again. nsloojup No internal type [...]Continue Reading »
Possible Duplicate: Is there anything I can do about someone who has pointed their domain at my ip? I’m running a dedicated server with own static IP for a while now. Some weeks ago I noticed while browsing logs some domain showing up and I was wondering why. After some playing around with that domain I noticed it’s a full DNS-A hostname pointing at my IP. What’s the reason someone would do that? And is [...]Continue Reading »
I thought that I need two DS records to deposit at my domain registrar. But one big dns provider just gave me one DS record. Verisign DNSSEC debugger says, everything is correct. But I am confused, because dnssec-keygen (DNSSEC key generation tool) gave me always two DS records. I have my doubts. Asked by Juan Hynix When you get 2 DS records, it is basically always because one of them contains a SHA-1 hash and [...]Continue Reading »
I want to create a record in my zone file which, by default goes to my webserver when I type in “mydomain.com” as opposed to “www.mydomain.com” <– working. can someone give me some pointers, I know this is probably very easy but the search terms lead google to just spit out useless info.

Possible Duplicate: nameserver problems with webmin/virtualmin I’m setting up a shiny new vps with my own nameserver. Fortunately I had a spare domain that I’m using and have registered as a nameserver. After a struggle, I seem to have it working but when I check two test sites with intoDNS, one appears to work and the other doesn’t. With dig, neither work. The setup for the two is identical other than one being hosted with [...]Continue Reading »
This may be a redundant questions, but is there any benefit to using name servers with a registar provider vs. a hosting provider? Some shared hosting accounts through places like 1&1 ask that you use their name servers when using an external domain through a different registar. Are there benefits to this? Is it completely reliant on the companies resources that you are using? Asked by RCNeil As you might have guessed, there’s both advantages [...]Continue Reading »
I have a domain name called dumbdom.com. I have an elastic IP for my AWS EC2 instance called my.ela.stic.ip. The htdocs root of my linux based EC2 instance is at /var/www/html/. I have set up the /etc/httpd/conf.d/vhost.conf file to direct the domain dumbdom.com to /var/www/html/my_dumb_app/ and that’s working Fine!

I have been tasked by my instructor to setup a DNS server. But I don’t really know if I’m doing it the right way. I am unable to resolve/ping/nslookup the name server. Syslog sais the ns1 is lame. I am using four Ubuntu clients with VirtualBox, one of them configured to be the DNS server. I’ve set up an bridged virtual network and all hosts are able to ping eachother. I use these IP addresses [...]Continue Reading »
I’m not that clued up on all aspects of DNS so apologies if this is a stupid question of sorts. Basically I have a VPS with one provider(Xeneurope) and the domain names with another(Fasthosts). Not ideal but its what I inherited. Anyway for the most part this hasn’t been an issue, but I’m wanting to send out HTML emails to our customers. But when I started sending test emails, a lot of email providers just [...]Continue Reading »
