What the hell came over you in changing subdomains?

    As the name says subdomains are sub the main domain.

    With the new handling for subdomains the DNS is abused and against all RFC.

    Setting up a domain is getting worser than ever. As you have to use 2 nameserver you will have to create slave zones for subdomains. As this can't be done via CP for each subdomain a customer creates an admin has to do something.

    Ever considered domains with 100+ subdomains????

    Point is you are fixing things that are not broken and keep things broken which should be fixed.
    I updated to 10.4.4 yesterday on 3 servers.
    Server 1 no problems
    Server 2 had to use bootstrap -repair
    Server 3 Plesk is broken -> tried repair -> no chance -> tried uninstall by script -> reinstall hangs same place -> no entry in logfiles.

    Module userdir already enabled
    Module dav already enabled
    Considering dependency dav for dav_fs:
    Module dav already enabled
    Module dav_fs already enabled
    Module auth_digest already enabled
    Module authz_user already enabled
    Module dav_lock already enabled


    this stays for ages and no progress.

    So fix the broken things and bring back normal subdomain handling.

    quite pissed

    Chris

    Subdomain's behaviour can be switched from New behaviour (own zones) to Old behaviour (А record for subdomain in zone of parent domain). Read article http://kb.parallels.com/en/112966

    what should I say?
    server 1 option found not tested yet
    server 3 still not working
    server 2
    checked psa misc -> no entry
    added manually
    tried to change now-> Unrecognized option
    changed manually:
    behavior still new.

    Again my question, why fix something which is not broken???

    What version of Plesk and MU you have? Check it with

    # cat /root/.autoinstaller/microupdates.xml

    I have the same values.

    It didn't work 10h ago.
    Now it seems to work, I changed nothing.

    Still does not explain why this has been launched.
    Are there no QA or QS @ parallels to avoid such "features"?
    Is there any situation where this is needed?

    Any hints about the server3 problem, another KB entry which I should know?
