[Pdns-users] AXFR Zone Transfer Problem

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the fast response.
Exactly, recursor runs on port 53. Pdns-auth runs on the same ip with port 5300.

Is this even possible to add a port to the master ip on the slave ?

As I understood it correctly I require the recursor.
It isn’t possible to do recursion with the pdns-with, right?

I configured PowerDNS Auth and recursor on one vm. Everything works fine - recursion, authoritative zone etc

How? Bound to different ports I am guessing?

I think the problem is the pdns recursor which is configured in front of the construct and forward every query.

That won't work.  The slave needs to contact the master - it cannot contact a recursor.

You could configure the slave to contact the master directly on its non-standard port (e.g. x.x.x.x:5300).

Better would be to bind the authoritative server to a different IP address, or run it in its own VM.  Another option, if the slaves are also pdns, is to use a database backend with native database replication.
