I don't think I have set up Bind9 correctly and I was hoping someone could point out any mistakes I may have made. I have tried to follow the examples in the handbook. I even bought DNS and BIND from O'riley.
I don't really know how to troubleshoot a DNS issue yet. I know of the tools I just don't understand them yet. I have a MS DNS server running fine as my secondary and when I try to troubleshoot it I can't tell if I am getting a response from my MS system or my FBSD system. Ultimately I would like to make this bind system my primary. Once that is done I have made arrangements for an off site system to act as my secondary for redundancy and I can eliminate the MS system all together. Should I post my config info here or is that just a real bad idea? I mean anyone can get what they want from the internet I just don't know if posting it here is like inviting someone to crack my system. Also I currently only have one FreeBSD system. I am trying to run multiple services on this one system Mail, DNS, WWW, SQL. It is a pretty beefy system and will have no problem handling the load. I just want to hide the hostname of the system when I can. I only have the one customer hitting the system and it is a real small company. This system is overkill for them so I am trying to utilize the system to the best of my ability. I know in a perfect world I should have them each running on separate systems however that is not feasible right now. I was thinking of getting some old P1 systems and moving DNS over to that. Any other recommendations are welcome.
