Computers that need to be accessed from Active Directory and DNS domains must have DNS records.
Although there are many different types of DNS records, most of these record types aren't commonly used.
So rather than focus on record types you probably The A record maps a host name to an IP address and the PTR record creates a pointer to the host for reverse lookups.
You can see directly from the domain's control panel whether or not the handle you are logged in under can edit a zone.
Nov 12 ps133045 named: client .42#50135: signer " approved Nov 12 ps133045 named: client .42#50135: updating zone 'mydomain.com/IN': adding an RR at 'client$ Nov 12 ps133045 named: /etc/bind/zones/zone.jnl: create: permission denied Nov 12 ps133045 named: client .42#50135: updating zone 'mydomain.com/IN': error: journal open fai$ So I figured it was permissions, so to test I gave both /var/named and /etc/bind chmod 666 Didn't help, so I created the file and chmod 600 it and thought that would do, I also did chown bind:bind and root:bind, but I still get the same error in both cases. Now it actually seems to work, here is the DNS chart for resolving client1.currently, which is a A record I just added with nsupdate ip.seveas.net/dnsgraph/png/client1.epnddns.com/… Therefore, the nsupdate process cannot write to them either.
Now I can't even restart bind due to this error Nov 12 ps133045 named: loading configuration from '/etc/bind/named.conf' Nov 12 ps133045 named: /etc/bind/local:9: open: /var/named/dnskeys.conf: permission denied Nov 12 ps133045 named: loading configuration: permission denied Nov 12 ps133045 named: exiting (due to fatal error) drw-rw-rw- 2 root bind 121 Nov 12 . it doesn't resolve in my browser yet but I gotta update my ns4 server first I assume. If you're dynamically updating your DNS, you should store your zone files in /var/lib/bind instead - https://help.ubuntu.com/14.04/serverguide/dns-configuration.html#dns-primarymaster-configuration Apt installer should have already created this directory with the correct permissions and App Armor context.
Log into your domain's control panel, then, in the lower-right hand of the page, in the “Zone File” section click on the link that says “Change”.
It's then a matter of choosing the one that you want from the list of available zones.
