Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered

Hi,

I have small problem with creating resource records in the DNS-DHCP console.

I create a zone and in this zone I need two NS records and one MX record.

This what I have:

ZONE: xxxxxx.yyy
@
NS ns.xxx.yyy

Now I need to create a second NS resource record and one MX resource
record. When I click on the @ and try to create this resource records I
get this error:

Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered.

I need this configuration:

ZONE: xxxxxx.yyy
@
NS ns. xxx.yyy
NS ns1.xxx.yyy
MX smtp.xxx.yyy

How can I fix this ?

Regards,

Frank

Don't click on the @ tab. Click on the zone itself, but leave any
leading field blank, and NS and MX records will go into the @ tab.

Some examples in my book on DNS, DHCP and Web Servers at the URL below.

Re: Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered

Hi Graig,

Thanks for answering my question in the newsgroup:
novell.support.netware.dns-dhcp.

I send you a private email because in that email is also a screenshot.
As you can see I click on the Zone Name en want to create a second NS
server. As you can see, it tells me that A Host Name must be entered.

I did this many times, bus suddenly it doesn’t work anymore? Or I do
something wrong ?

Regards,

Frank

Re: Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered

Frank,

I got your email. By the way, my name is spelled Craig, not Graig.

You are using the java-based dnsdhcp console for Linux, correct? (From
2009.) I use that for some work on my Windows 7 64-bit PC because I
couldn't get the older version to work.

I found the same bug - it tries to force you to add in something on the
NS record where you are not supposed to put anything. You are not
doing anything wrong.

I have some suggestions:
1. If you have a Windows XP machine, use the other dns/dhcp client
software, which is in the public/dnsdhcp directory of a NetWare 6.5
server.
2. If you are using Windows 7 pro (business? Ultimate? Enterprise?),
Install XP Mode on it. (You can install XP Mode on Home versions, but
it won't run afterwards.) Then put the older dnsdhcp program on the
virtualized XP system and run it there.
3. Use iManager for creating this record.
4. If you can't do the above for some reason, or you just want to try
something different, you can manually create the record using
ConsoleOne. But it's very tricky. You would have to add the record in
the Other attributes of the @ object, under the DNIP-RR attribute, in
hex. If you have another NS object created, you could copy it and then
carefully edit it.

I don't know how the problem dnsdhcp.exe program can be fixed so it
allows the proper entries.

Re: Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered

Hi Craig,

Sorry for my mistake in your name.

Thanks for all the tips and answers. I ended up at using a clean XP
station with the Novell Client 4.91 SP5 and the DNS/DHCP Console 6.5-SP7
(From Netware)

This DNS/DHCP Console works now perfectly with our Primary DNS Server on
Linux OES SP2.

Thanks for this solution.

Regards,

Frank

(The new DNS/DHCP Console from Linux OES SP2 gives the same error on
Windows XP.) I hope this will be soon fixed in a new download from Novell.

Does that mean the problem does not exist if you run the management console
on OES2 SP2?

Re: Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered



Hi Craig,

My setup is now: Windows XP(Ent.), SUSE OES2 SP2 and the old DNS/DHCP
Console taken from a Netware server 6.5 SP7

The latest DNS/DHCP Console (download from Novell - DNSDHCP_SA) give's
the same error on Windows XP as seen on Windows 7

yes, it just seems to be an ordinary bug. Someone put a check for an
entry in that field that doesn't apply all the time.

This thread is two years old, but the relevance still exists. I'm still seeing this issue in OES 11 SP1, and you can't manage DNS-DHCP through iManager anymore... They took that functionality away. Has there been a fix issued for this problem??

Re: Error: E0128 Host Name must be entered

Looks like you need to enter the "@" symbol in the owner name field in order to add MX and NS records (and presumably any other records you wish to tie to the root of the domain). Be sure to do a "Tree Refresh"; the additions will appear below the @ symbol...
