Create SOA - Question #44
I don't understand.
Yeah, the validation of SOA is a bit weak and confusing and needs to be improved. It also looks like the help file needs to be updated to address the SOA as well.
The key is the bottom field "Append Domain" which will automatically append the domain (or zone name) to the master server and email address. So, if you enter 'ns1.domain.com.' for master server and leave Append Domain to 'yes' then the result ends up being 'ns1.domain.com.domain.com.' (assuming 'domain.com' is the zone name) which is 'invalid' and the same applies to the email address. So, you can either enter 'ns1' for the master server and 'username' for the email address and append the domain automatically so both become 'ns1.domain.com.' and 'firstname.lastname@example.org.' respectively. Or you can enter the full master server name and email address, but set Append Domain to 'no' (just remember to end them with a period).
I hope this helps and I'll leave this issue open until improvements are added to the code for the next release.
