%blue%Setting Up a DNS Server


%blue%STEP 1...First we need to get the following bind packages..



# rpm -qa|grep bind
bind-devel-9.2.1-16
bind-utils-9.2.1-16
bind-9.2.1-16
redhat-config-bind-1.9.0-13



%blue%STEP 2...

After the above packages are installed we need to open/edit the file /etc/named.conf and

then create a entry for our primary and secondary name servers,which are ns0.armia8dns.com and

ns1.armia8dns.com and ns0.armia8dns.com has an ip 192.168.0.8 and ns2.armia8dns.com has the ip

address 192.168.0.9

%blue%ADDING THE NAME SERVERS ns0.armiadns.com and ns1.armiadns.com...

[~]# vi /etc/named.conf


zone "ns0.armia8dns.com" {
type master;
file "/var/named/ns0.armia8dns.com.db";
};



%blue%The 3rd step is to create the db file for the above dns in /var/named/


[~]# vi /etc/named/ns0.armia8dns.com.db



$ORIGIN .
$TTL 86400
ns0.armia8dns.com IN SOA ns0.armia8dns.com. root.armia8.com. (
42 ; serial (d. adams)
3H ; refresh
15M ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

IN NS ns0.armia8dns.com.
IN NS ns1.armia8dns.com.
IN A 192.168.0.8
IN MX 0 ns0.armia8.com.
$ORIGIN ns0.armia8dns.com.
localhost A 127.0.0.1



%blue%STEP 3 A

Now again for ns1.armia8dns.com add the entry in /etc/named.conf as shown below



zone "ns1.armia8dns.com" {
type master;
file "/var/named/ns1.armia8dns.com.db";
};


%blue%STEP 3 B

Again create a file named /etc/named/ns1.armia8dns.com.db
[~]# vi /etc/named/ns1.armia8dns.com.db



$ORIGIN .
$TTL 86400
ns1.armia8dns.com IN SOA ns0.armia8dns.com. root.armia8.com. (
42 ; serial (d. adams)
3H ; refresh
15M ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

IN NS ns0.armia8dns.com.
IN NS ns1.armia8dns.com.
IN A 192.168.0.9
IN MX 0 ns1.armia8.com.
$ORIGIN ns1.armia8dns.com.
localhost A 127.0.0.1



%blue%STEP 4...


Now we can start named on the server and see if armia8dns worksfine or not, we can use

the dig command or the command such as ping to test this.


#dig ns0.armia8dns.com and dig ns1.armia8dns.com


ADDING A DOMAIN TO THE DNS FILE AND TO /var/named

%blue%STEP 5...

The 4th step is to add a new domain "itmission.org" to the dns.



%blue%STEP 6...

Open the file /etc/named.conf and add the following line to the file named.conf

[~]# vi /etc/named.conf




zone "itmission.org" {
type master;
file "/var/named/itmission.org";
};


%blue%STEP 7...

The 7th step is to create the db file for the above domain "ITMISSION.ORG" dns in /var/named/


[~]# vi /etc/named/itmission.org.db



$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA ns0.armia8dns.com. root.armia8.com. (
42 ; serial (d. adams)
3H ; refresh
15M ; retry
1W ; expiry
1D ) ; minimum

itmission.org. IN NS ns0.armia8dns.com.
itmission.org. IN NS ns1.armia8dns.com.
itmission.org. IN A 192.168.0.8
localhost.itmission.org. IN A 127.0.0.1
itmission.org. IN MX 0 itmission.org.
www IN CNAME itmission.org.
mail IN CNAME itmission.org.




%blue%STEP 8...


Restart the dns server and then try to check the domain itmission.org

%blue%STARTING BIND SERVER

/etc/init.d/named restart

service named restart

rndc reload

%blue%STEP 9...


Now if you would like to add subdomain entries...do use the following entries in the file /etc/named/itmission.org.db


admin IN A 192.168.0.8
www.admin IN A 192.168.0.8
ads IN A 192.168.0.8
www.ads IN A 192.168.0.8




check to see if /etc/resolv.conf are setup correctly for DNS .
