View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bind9 DNS Server not found - "9(NOAUTH)"

December 5th, 2012, 11:18 AM
Today I followed this tutorial: TUTORIAL (http://lani78.wordpress.com/2012/07/22/setting-up-a-dns-for-the-local-network-on-the-ubuntu-12-04-precise-pangolin-server/)
But I get an error message:

user@localhost:~$ host -l office.lan
; Transfer failed.
Host office.lan.office.lan not found: 9(NOTAUTH)
; Transfer failed.

what could I have missed?

Host office.lan.office.lan not found

A quick guess is that you are missing a trailing period in some host declaration. Notice how it has appended the domain to the domain. The trailing period is critical in zone files and easy to miss.

For instance,

@ IN SOA example.com ...

IN NS example.com

will result in the nameserver appearing to be example.com.example.com because the entry in the NS declaration is missing a trailing period.
