Hi !

I have an Apple Intel Xserve running 10.4.11

It is a fileserver but is also running its own DNS

I am seeing the following in the logs

Feb 2 09:07:30 fileserver servermgrd: servermgr_dns: gethostbyaddr() and reverse DNS name do not match (fileserver != fileserver.company.org.uk), various services may not function properly - use changeip to repair and/or correct DNS

However if run

changeip -checkhostname
dig -x 192.168.2.11
dig fileserver.company.org.uk

(see below)
All the responses - appear to be correct -
So how can I stop these error messages without amending /etc/hostconfig which I believe you are not supposed to do.



fileserver:~ root# changeip -checkhostname
Primary address = 192.168.2.11
Current HostName = fileserver.company.org.uk
DNS HostName = fileserver.company.org.uk
The names match. There is nothing to change.

Also

fileserver:~ root# dig -x 192.168.2.11
