Using Plesk as primary DNS server

    Using Plesk as primary DNS server - MySQL Help needed

    We host around 100+ domains, I want to use Plesk as a primary DNS server so that I can edit zone files from anywhere and they will go live shortly.

    I currently have a script that reads the named.conf file and recreates it with type slave; statements so that it can send that file on to my 3 other DNS servers (that are publicly available), I plan to keep Plesk a local DNS server and not public.

    Anyways, I have everything working except for 2 things.

    1. We are an ISP, we have about 750 IP addresses that I need to create PTR records for and A records for so that all of our customers IP's are reversible. This is a real pain to enter then 1 at a time, if anyone knows a shortcut for getting them entered I will worship you for a few days.

    2. After many trials and errors, I finally have Plesk where it creates the NS entries in a way that it makes the zones transferable to the listed NS entries. So my 3 other DNS servers can properly zone transfer domains. However the x.x.x.in.arpa zones that are auto created in Plesk don't carry over these NS entries, so therefore can not be transferred.

    I have figured out how to log into the PSA plesk database, however I am not a SQL guru, and have no idea what commands need to be issued in order to add global trusted NS entries. I am looking for a step by step command structure to enter the records.

    If someone could assist with either or both of these requests, as stated above, I will worship the ground you walk on (for a few days), I will put a sign above my monitor that says _____ is a god, and I worship him!

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Oh yeah

    I guess I forgot to post that.

    It's Plesk 7.5.6 and we are using the Bind implementation that comes installed with Plesk.

    I am also running Bind 9.x on all 3 of my public DNS servers as well.

    I hope that helps.

    I usually hate bumping a thread, but still have not gotten any info on this and have been unable to find anything while searching for info. If anyone has any suggestions I would really be appreciative.

    Thanks,

    Ok, I got the part with entering the Common Transfer List, so all my DNS servers should work there now. Still looking for an easy way to import reverse DNS entries.

    Thanks,
