Wrong hostname as NS record

I can see that virtualmin create a NS record wit hostname value for all created domains ! But I think this is wrong.

I've configured virtualmin wizard to use : ns1.mydomain.com ns2.mydomain.com as the nameservers and they're all set. my hostname is : sv.mydomain.com

Why virtualmin creates a NS record for sv.mydomain.com in all dns records ? I'm getting error from http://intodns.com/ when I check my dns records validty.

This just fix when I use ns1.mydomain.com as the hostname which doesn't make sense at all !

Closed (fixed)


By default, Virtualmin uses your server's hostname as master NS entry.

You can configure that behavior in the server template, section "BIND DNS Domain". Look for the entry "Master DNS server hostname: Automatic (from system's hostname) / Hostname".

I see this has been fixed in recent version of virtualmin.
