DNS problem with domain aliases

    Hi everybody,

    For my domains I use Plesk with bind as DNS server. I have set up the domain template to always use the same DNS servers (to be precise something like ns3.companyname.com). Of course this works fine and when adding a new domain all the DNS settings are made perfectly.

    However when I add a domain alias to an existing environment then Plesk also creates the zonefile, but the SOA record is incorrect. It looks lik this:

    @ IN SOA domainname.com. username.domainname.com. (
    1127484709 ; Serial
    14400 ; Refresh
    3600 ; Retry
    604800 ; Expire
    3600) ; Minimum

    It defines domainname.com as the DNS server, but that should be ns3.companyname.com.

    So when adding a new domain all the settings are made correct, but when adding a domain alias this setting is done wrong in the zonefile of the domain...

    Can anybody tell me how this is possible and how i can correct it (besides doing it manually)? Thanks!

    It seems that you can do it only manually

    That's what I do now indeed, but why can't Plesk do this like it should, since it works fine with the main domains.

    Hmmm... it is a good idea will make it automatically. Ask feature request to SWsoft, usually they release similar feature in 2-3 month.
