I am trying to set up a DNS server on Ubuntu 11.04. The main reason I want to have this DNS server is so I can create a server specifically for testing before making the code live. Creating this DNS server would allow the code to be run on this test server on those computers in our lab that have changed their resolv.conf file. I have a lot of direct links in the code, so this would make things easier. I have gone through the documentation and I believe I have set up the zone correctly, but I think I am not setting the db.example.com file correctly. (I am using my own website here, not example.com) this is what I have: Also, There exists a roots.example.com (again, insert a website in place of example.com), but I am not sure there exists a root.roots.example.com like the documentation.
@ IN SOA roots.example.com. root.roots.example.com. (
@ IN NS roots.example.com. roots.example.com IN A 0.0.0.0 (the ip address)
Thanks in advance!
