View Full Version : ISPmanager default DNS template

04-29-2010, 01:04 AM
Hello all,

I would like to create my own template for DNS zone files (cname records, TTLs,...etc.).

I've found http://forum.ispsystem.com/en/showthread.php?t=205&highlight=domain+zone+template but there is no domainzone.templ file on my server.

Can I get some advise on how to create my own DNS template?

See http://en.ispdoc.com/index.php/Configuration_file_templates_(ISPmanager)
You need create a new file in the /usr/local/ispmgr/etc/ folder.
Lines from this file will be add to new zone file.

I have tried that, but it doesnt realy work.

My domainzone.templ content is:

www IN CNAME webs.somedomain
ftp IN CNAME ftps.somedomain

When I add a domain, the domain zone file (example.com) is like:

cat domainzone.templ >> /etc/bind/example.com
echo 'example.com. IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:<IP> a mx ~all"' >> /etc/bind/example.com

It does not have standard TTL, SOA and other information...and TXT record is still added.

Is there some additional info about what variables can I use in domainzone.templ (or just __IP__, __NAME__)?

I have to get rid of the TXT record and add my own CNAME records...
If there is some "after new zone creation" hook, I could call my own script to set this up.

Thank you for helping me out!

www and ftp presents in DefaultARecords. You should to edit ispmgr.conf and remove it first. Set DefaultARecords to something like this:
DefaultARecords mail smtp pop
Attention, no www and ftp here.
Also you should to add your SOA and TTL information to domainzone.templ.
__IP__, __NAME__ are macroses that you can use, and there are no another macros in domainzone.templ.
