How to add new Solaris client IP into Solaris 10 DNS server?


We just built a new Solaris 10 zone. And would like to add it to our DNS server. Its also Solaris 10. Please let me know how can I get the IP resolved using this DNS server. I added entry into zone config file but not working. I did restarted the DNS services. And also added nameserver name into resolv.conf

bash-3.2# nslookup test-dev2-web-01 192.168.x.y
Server:         192.168.x.y
Address:        192.168.x.y#53

** server can't find test-dev2-web-01: REFUSED

bash-3.2# cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 192.168.x.y

Please let me know what I am missing.

You must add test-dev2-web-01 to your DNS server, either as a A record or a CNAME record.

I did added under /var/named/<zone file> as below:

bash-3.00# cat | grep
test-dev2-web-01 IN     A  ;Test 1.0 Web-01

Also below is the "allow" entry from named.conf. Please let me know if its correct.
bash-3.00# cat /etc/named.conf | grep allow
          allow-query { any; };
//        allow-recursion { corpnets; };
        // #allow-query {;; };
        allow-transfer {
        allow-query-cache { none; };

That is not a name server, that's a server.

Please google "dns name server" and get a DNS provider for these DNS issues.

Also, this address space:


Is private address space, normally dynamically allocated by your local IP router, so not really sure what you are trying to do here.
