    I am having trouble with a DNS issue. I have 2 nameservers that are setup outside the realm of HSPComplete that I want to use. I set them up to be slaves of the name server on the HSP Complete setup. Using some scripts, I am transferring the list of zones to the slave servers and the entries are being created in the slave servers, but the dns info never gets to the slaves. Any ideas.

    Seems that you have to configure nameserver inside HSPC VPS for notification and zonetransfer (/etc/named.conf):

    options {
    allow-transfer {
    1.2.3.4;
    1.2.3.5;
    };
    also-notify {
    1.2.3.4;
    1.2.3.5;
    };
    directory "/var/named";
    };

    where 1.2.3.4 and 1.2.3.5 - IPs of slave nameservers.

    Also you may transfer zonefiles by script as well.

    I found the problem. It was that BIND on the HSPComplete system was not set to run in the chrooted environment. Once I added the proper options to the init script, all is running as it should.

    I would suggest to check that HSPC's Domain Manager works correctly with new named's location.

    All of the entries from the domain manager were setup to go into the chrooted env., BIND just was not set to start in it. Everything is working as planned.
