DNS and named-xfer

By anthonyc ·
I am trying to determine why my secondary DNS server will not transfer a certain domain from the primary. When I execute the command named-xfer I get this error:

named-xfer[26047]: [208.x.x.x] not authoritative for somedomain.com, SOA query
got rcode 0, aa 0, ancount 1, aucount 0

What I do know is that I have set up many domains and they all look alike yet this one will not transfer to the secondary. I have gone over the named.conf and the domain database many times and can not find any errors. Also I have used multiple secondary servers and they all give the same error, so I am assuming that the issue is with the primary server.

Any ideas what this means and how to solve?

Try temporarily removing the primary from the domain and see if you can promote one of the secondaries to a primary. If this works, then you might want to uninstall and reinstall the DNS on the problem machine.

Hope this helps.

It looks like you have an error in the file for that perticular domain.

What you can do is, on the primary server where that domain is defined, restart the named and look in the logs to see if you have something perticular with that domain.

My guess it that you will find it right there.
