Is there a way to automate setting up the initial name servers on a webmin/virtualmin install?
I build 3 or 4 installs a week and have been setting them up manually.
Main site on the vps is:
custom name servers:
Subsequent virtual servers would use ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com as their name servers.
What can I do so that the first vhost made gets name servers created automatically and these become the default custom name servers?
Hmnn… I was looking for the answer to this question as well.
I tried adding them to the server template but keep getting the following error:
Failed to save server template : Additional nameserver ns1.nameserver.com does not exist
Time for me to give back to the community!
The simple answer to the OP’s question is:
Go to Virtualmin -> System Settings -> Server Templates.
Click Default Settings.
From the dropdown list, select BIND DNS domain.
In the section for “Additional manually configured nameservers:” put in your custom nameservers, one per line.
The answer to my additional question on why it wouldn’t accept my nameservers was found here:
I had to go to Webmin-> Networking -> Network Configuration, click on Host Addresses, then add the nameserver names to the IP addresses.
So, the existing entry showed server.example.com, server and to that I added ns1.example.com. ns1
Saved it, applied the configuration and went back to the Server Settings and added my custom nameservers and they went through.
