Hi Kris,

You're right. The primary and secondary namservers are accepting the slave zones but addressing them as local in named.conf. I don't understand why as I have bind set up with default settings on all the boxes, specifically, "Default master server IP for remote slave zones " is set to "ip address of hostname".

Maybe Jamie has an idea.

Sorry Kris,
I'm just using the out of box BIND module in a VirtualminPro setup.
In Webmin you can register other servers as webmin servers and
then assign them as "cluster slave servers" in the BIND module.

Essentially, I'm trying to see if there's a bug or I what I need to
adjust to fix these RPC errors that I've been getting. So NS1 and
NS2 have each other then as slave servers. For some reason NS2
will receive the new domain during account creation but then gets
an RPC invalid login error during the second access to NS2.

I'm not sure what you mean by "cluster slave servers";  with BIND, a
machine is either a (usually THE) master, or a slave for any given
zone.
If a server is set as a slave, and the master allows zone transfers to
that slave, it works fine IME - that's why I asked about what's in your
named.conf on the master and slave machines, and what the NS
records are
in the master zone file.  The log messages you reported indicate
that
something isn't set up correctly for the slave to be able to transfer
the zone.

There are extra directives you can use in the master and slave
servers'
named.conf to allow servers outside those listed as authoritative NS
machines to do zone transfers, but I can't really think of many cases
where that would be useful for Internet-facing zones.

To rephrase what I was trying to point out with my previous
message,
your slave server appears to be confused about where to find the
master
zone, and the master may or may not even be configured correctly
to
allow slaves to request a zone transfer.

Without looking at the named.conf files and the master zone's NS
records, I can't say for certain what's wrong.
