I have been running bind for a little over 2 years now but don't fully
it and how to configure it very well.
I started out with a single domain name, trells.com running mail, ftp, http,
standard stuff, no big deal. Now however we have multiple domains (mainly
this too was no big deal. However this has grown to a need of having
mx records, and I'm unsure how to update this.
Each domain has its own db file and mx record, and this part was the part
messed up and I'm trying to fix. We run qmail as our mail server and for a
this was fine one instance controlling all domains. I'm in the process of
up a separate instance of qmail for each domain, and for that I need to get
dns setup correctly.
My question to you guys is this,
1) tc1.trells.com has multiple ip's, and I want to bind mail.trells.com to
18.104.22.168 and mail.bazalar.com to say imp 22.214.171.124, but I'm
in how to do this in the db files. trells and bazalar each have there own
Once I can get an understanding of how to do this I can then setup the mx
Would I make the db.trells.com mx line like
a) @ IN MX 10 mail.trells.com.
b) 126.96.36.199 IN MX 10 mail.trells.com.
and then the db.bazalar.com mx line similar, using the actual ip instead of
I'm sorry for my ignorance, and I hope I have explained what I'm trying to
I have no other way of explaining it or searching for it :(
also on a side note, in the soa second line i.e.
trells.com. IN SOA tc1.trells.com. mail.trells.com. (
for the other domains, i.e. bazalar.com what would I put here, since its the
bazalar.com. IN SOA tc1.bazalar.com. mail.bazalar.com. (
