I have a brand new dedicated server where I need to install the DNS, set up namespace, email and a website.
I've done this in the past but I'm not sure if i've done it correctly.
I have two domains xx.net and xx.com I use xx.net to set up the namespace server.
I've installed DNS without AD. (Do i need AD?) I ran through the configuration wizard on DNS and configured and Forward and Reverse domain namespace 'xx.net'
What should the SOA settings be? I've just left them as default at the moment.
I've tried to add the namespace records ns1.xx.net but it's not validating. Is this because I need to wait for the domain name host settings to be updated from godaddy?
My next step was going to be adding the A record for ns1.xx.net is this needed? Then setting up the MX records for xx.com
Am I on the right track?
Cheers for clearing this up for me finally.
