This is my current DNS example.com.db zone file. I followed a tutorial. It works, because when I point to this DNS from another server via resolve.conf, it will actually forward me to the right IP when I do "ping example.com".
; ; BIND data file for example.com ; $TTL 604800 @ IN SOA example.com. info.example.com. ( 2007011501 ; Serial 7200 ; Refresh 120 ; Retry 2419200 ; Expire 604800) ; Default TTL ; @ IN NS ns1.example.com. @ IN NS ns2.example.com. example.com. IN MX 10 mail.example.com. example.com. IN A 192.168.254.1 www IN CNAME example.com. mail IN A 192.168.254.1 ftp IN CNAME example.com. example.com. IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:192.168.254.1 a mx ~all" mail IN TXT "v=spf1 a -all"
ping example.com....goes to 192.168.254.1. That's great!!! it works!
My question is--how can I add something do this file so that when my other servers:
ping dbserver1....goes to 126.96.36.199 ping cacheserver1 ....goes to 188.8.131.525
I want to use it like a universal hosts file for my machines.
