There is nothing wrong with that answer -- DNS is working.

Well, from your first message...

Or you can look at the NAMED screen and/or log (sys:named.run) if you load it
with logging options: NAMED -DL 3 -S will cause it to log to the file and the
screen. If you increase the number (up to 10, I think), you get more detail.

Re: how to exclude the search of rootserverinfo

in the dns/dhcp utility if
select the DNS tab
select the dns server in the botton
in the tab "Zone" there is a field "DNS server Domain Name".

Which is the name that i must use?

on the server1 i have "dns" while
on the server2 i have "dnsdmz.rootserverinfo"
and i don't know why!

which is the correct name?

i have tried to load named with these options but the file named.run is
not created. why? perhaps because i haven't a version of named.nlm that
not support these options? (named.nlm 5.12.06 11 maggio 04)
what can i verify?

thank you very much.

That should be the fully qualified domain name of the server, for
example 'myserver.mydomain.com', where 'mydomain.com' would match the
domain as shown in sys:etc/resolv.cfg.

My mistake -- I thought I saw NW 6.5 earlier in the thread, but it was
NW 6 SP 5. You need to load NAMED -V to get the verbose output to the
NAMED screen, and download DBGLOG.EXE if you want to capture the output
to a file for later review.

in the file resolv.cfg on Server1:
domain pippo1.com
nameserver 10.x.x.x

in the dns/dhcp in the field named "dns server domain name" there is "dns"

in the file resolv.cfg on server2:
domain pluto.com
nameserver 192.x.x.x

in the dns/dhcp in the field named "dns server domain name" there
is "dnsdmz.rootserverinfo

these name don't match with resolv.cfg!!!
is it mistake?
which are the name that i must put in the field "dns server domain name"

Server1.pippo1.com and Server2.pluto.com, substituting real server names
for Server1 and Server2.

Yes, it will likely always be "beta" only because it is not officially
supported. But it's been out there for years and it works.

Yes, you should, although I don't know that it's related to the problem
this thread is about. Still, it can't hurt to fix it -- just be sure
to restart NAMED after making the changes.
