H-Sphere DNS Zones

The main named directory both on master and slave DNS servers is /hsphere/local/var/named/.

It contains the zones_index.conf file, the zones_(NUMBER).conf files and the zones(NUMBER) directories, where (NUMBER) = 1, 2, ... , 22
This structure contains H-Sphere DNS info and files. To find a zone, execute the following commands:
# cd /hsphere/local/var/named/
# grep "Zone.Name.com" *.conf
It will return the data which contains the zone file location. But please don't modify it manually, especially, if you don't understand what you do.

The localhost and 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa zones files are located in the /hsphere/local/var/named/local/ directory.

Custom DNS Zones

If you need to add a custom zone, we recommend placing it into this directory. Note that H-Sphere won't manage your custom zones, you will have to manage them manually.

Reverse DNS

H-Sphere doesn't manage reverse DNS. To configure reverse DNS globally for the main H-Sphere domain, H-Sphere owner's ISP or domain registration company should accordingly configure reverse DNS for this domain on their DNS servers.
