MX primary and secondary on same Indy

Post by Nick Drag » Fri, 25 Oct 1996 04:00:00



All,

Can anyone advise me on how to make the same Indy act as primary MX for
some domains, and secondary MX for other domains.

I.e. mail to:
primary.com goes to the Indy, and is distributed to mailboxes.
secondary.com goes to the customers mailhost, but if that mailhost is
down, it goes to the Indy which will keep trying to contact the
customers mailhost until it comes back up.

Not really expecting answering, more pointing me where to look.

As far as I know "setting up" a secondary MX mostly involves making
sure you do have an SMTP like sendmail server running.

 
 
 

1. Help: secondary can't load data from primary

Hi:

Is there any reason other than network connection why our secondary
can't load data from primary name server.  The message at secondary
machine says: zoneref: Masters for secondary zone colorbank.com
unreachable.

But this secondary load other zone files just fine.

The zone data at primary is:

colorbank.com.  IN  SOA www2.colorbank.com. mwang.www.colorbank.com. (

        10800
        3600

        86400 )

I am running primary on Indy with IRIX 6.2 and secondary on Indy with
