    First, I’d like to say it’s a great product. I’m using it as a virtualized primary DNS server, and another as a slave. However, I have run across two problems that I just can’t resolve on my own. It might be due to a lack of understanding on my part.

    In one or your other posts, you told someone to add a CNAME record under the ‘@’ record to resolve a ‘domain.name’ query. It works fine on the primary, but I get an error in the log of the slave as follows:

    20:05:07 transfer of ‘dvc.edu/IN’ from connected using
    20:05:08 transfer of ‘dvc.edu/IN’ from failed while receiving responses: CNAME and other data
    20:05:08 transfer of ‘dvc.edu/IN’ from end of transfer

    When I remove the record, it works fine.

    Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding how this is supposed to work? Is there a workaround?


    Do you have tried with a A record instead of a CNAME one?



    Thanks for the quick reply.

    The A record works properly on transfers so I can use that.

    Thanks again.
