Hi all!
I'm attempting to create a forward lookup zone for host.continents.earth.ops.
Using host.continents.earth.ops. will not work however when I use host.earth.ops. it will work
Is there any solution or explanation to this?

I am not sure I understand your question, do you want to add antartica to continents.earth.ops (eg antartica.continents.earth.ops), or to host.continents.earth.ops (eg antartica.host.continents.earth.ops)?

from what I remember, your subdomain records must follow the $ORIGIN domain.

for example, the doman earth.ops could be:

Code: Select all

$ORIGIN earth.ops.
@			IN	A	192.168.76.1
mail			IN	A	192.168.76.1
www		IN	A	192.168.76.1

$ORIGIN continents.earth.ops.
@			IN	A	192.168.76.2
continents	IN	A	192.168.76.2
Note, how the ending dot plays an important role, in subdomains there is no ending dot. Also note that I'm using @ substitution.
