Hello,

 

i am trying to wipe the DNS on a snow leopard server to then reconfigure it so that it will be able to point to its self etc for hosting open directory.

 

does anyone know how to do this?

 

by terminal ?

    Have a look at this. It was written for Lion but the steps should be identical for Snow Leopard.

     

    Once you've performed those steps, have a look at this for proper DNS configuration.

    What is happening when you try to put the nameserver hostnames in? Are the fields greyed out? Do the changes not stick when you hit save?

     

    Can you attach a screen shot of what's happening?

    That's the exact issue I had that caused me to have to start over w/ DNS, and prompted my writeup.

     

    You didn't skip the reboot at step 6, did you?

    What are the permissions on /etc/named.conf?

    Ahh, I think your problems were with permissions. It should be system:wheel, with 755 permissions. I will make sure I add the permissions into my writeup.
