I've installed BIND in my Windows server2003. i've configured the named file in C:\named\etc\named.conf as:

options { directory "c:\named\zones"; allow-transfer { none; }; recursion no; };

zone "" IN { type master; file ""; allow-transfer { none; }; };

My zone file is configured in C:\named\zones\ as: $TTL 6h @ IN SOA… ( 2010010901 10800 3600 604800 86400 )

@ NS

ns1 IN A mug IN A

key "rndc-key" { algorithm hmac-md5; secret "M0oW24WFQZhMu9wTq8qepw=="; };

controls { inet port 53 allow {; } keys { "rndc-key"; }; };

In the above i've given the name to the domain as "tisdns". i want to create a new domain name in a different zone file. how can i create it?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Just create a new file in the same folder (C:\named\zones) and add another zone entry in the named conf file for it:

zone "" IN { type master; file ""; allow-transfer { none; }; };
zone "" IN { type master; file ""; allow-transfer { none; }; };
