Data solaris dns

Hi all,

I have configured dns on solaris 10 and it is working fine but i want to add some other domains in this dns like yahoo and gmail. but i have no idea how to do this. I have added zone entry in named.conf and created a seperate zone file under /var/named/ but when i use nslookup it is giving error.

** server can't find SERVFAIL

My dns reasult is given below. I want to make same result with other domains using same dns.
> set ty=mx
Address: mail exchanger = 10

Am i doing correct, Can some one provide me assistance, how can i do this.

Thanks in advance. looking forward for good response.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.

First of all, use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code. You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)

Second, avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts. Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.

Third, be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.
