Zone transfer problem

Zone transfer problem

Post by Jun Humphrey Zhan » Sat, 31 May 1997 04:00:00

Hi, there,
        Each time my secondary nameserver does the zone transfer from the primary,
the following error message is logged:

        Bad response to SOA query from [], zone rcode 0, aa 0, ancount 1, aucount 0.

while the zone file is not trasfered. I also manually executed "named-xfer"
from the command line, the same message come to the console, no data_file
created, the log_file told me that there is no error, and the trace_file is
zero in size.

        Besides, I have a private network, which is
liked by named. There is no problem for transfering zone file for My secondary nameserver is a dual homed host.

        A documented error message:

        Malformed response from [IP-ADDRESS].PORT (answer to wrong question)

from syslog is quite like what I have above. The book <<DNS and
BIND>> pointed out a way to resolve the problem --- the named packet
checking, but didn't mention how, also no reference for that skill.

I need help here.



1. zones - problem with configuring another, new zone


sparc Solaris 10 3/05 + Recommended patches. We have configured three
local zones and are configuring right now fourth zone. After installing
and connecting to the zone console (zlogin -C ...) while configuring

  Host Name for hme0:4                                                          

  Enter the host name which identifies this system on the network.  The name
  must be unique within your domain; creating a duplicate host name will cause
  problems on the network after you install Solaris.

  A host name must be at least two characters; it can contain letters, digits,
  and minus signs (-).

    Host name for hme0:4 3000                            

    Esc-2_Continue    Esc-6_Help

 we get:

  Confirm Information for hme0:4                                                

  > Confirm the following information.  If it is correct, press F2;
    to change any information, press F4.

    Networked: Yes
    Host name: 3000

  Just a moment...

Assertion failed: have_min_net_info(nc) == TRUE, file main.c, line 1468

Below is configuration for the zone:
bash-3.00# zonecfg -z 3000
zonecfg:3000> info
zonepath: /zones/3000
autoboot: true
        dir: /lib
        dir: /platform
        dir: /usr
        dir: /sbin
        dir: /usr/local
        special: /zones/local/3000
        raw not specified
        type: lofs
        options: [rw]
        physical: hme0

Does anybody know what is wrong ?
