[Pdns-users] Powerdns server is not passing Authority parameter

Because the default SOA-Name is only for new domains. For existing domains, you have to change the record in the zone itself.
For example with „pdnsutil edit-zone essyfortunes.com“.

How can I change it?

I had made the changes on pdns.conf as shown below;


Why is it picking a.misconfigured.powerdns.server.
