I have a VPC on Amazon. Currently, it's running
bind9 on one of the servers. It has records like this:
build IN A 172.aa.bb.cc dev IN A 172.xx.yy.zz
This works fine, but in the interest of simplicity, I want to move its functionality to Amazon's Route53.
I've created a Private Hosted Zone on
mydomain.local. I imported the
db.mydomain.local file from bind9, and it created a few DNS records that look good to me. I noticed my records are added with the
mydomain.local suffix, and I'd like them to still be available as shorthand (
dev rather than
Next, I wanted to test if my configuration actually works. I stopped the bind9 service, and tried some
nslookup commands, but those didn't seem to pick up the new config.
So, I have a few questions:
- Do I need to configure something on my server(s) to pick up the Route53 config?
- What is the easiest way to test this? I'm not at all familiar with
Any links to helpful documentation are also appreciated. I already read through Amazon's own documentation, but it doesn't seem to cover anything beyond creating the Private Hosted Zone itself.
