I am trying to figure out what to do about my Zimbra server's DNS.
According the Zimrba wiki they recommend that I install a copy of something like BIND on the server itself so Zimbra can handle the internal queries made by postfix.
So I went and install BIND9 and got my zone running, the zone is
solignis.com. Now here is where it get confusing.
I already have a BIND9 server running on my network that is responsible for the same domain
solignis.com. But that server is the "network" DNS the other one on Zimbra is for Zimbra ONLY.
But when I go the Zimbra host and try to ping the other server (NS01) it says its an
unknown host. even though I have forwarding enabled to the main DNS server. Follow me?
So I have a multi part question.
- Is the best way to setup DNS for my needs (as per Zimbra)?
- Assuming #1 is true, is there a way to force BIND to forward queries for a domain its responsible for to another server?
