Bind Redirect zone



  • Hello,

    I've been trying to setup a redirect zone on bind - I want to send all request for *.testdomain.com to a particular NS.

    In theory it seems very simple, but I can't make it work using the pfSense UI. I use "." (no quotes) as the zone name, I set the views correctly, I out in a A entry such as:

    *.testdomain.com      SOME.INS.P.ADDRESS

    But when I do restart bind, I get the following in my logs:

    Nov 8 14:38:29	named	15548	general: critical: exiting (due to fatal error)
    Nov 8 14:38:29	named	15548	general: critical: loading zones: empty label
    Nov 8 14:38:29	named	15548	general: error: redirect-zone/pfSense: not loaded due to errors.
    

    I'm not sure what label is supposedtly empty. Is is the resulting zone config file that the UI has generated with my config

    $TTL 300
    ;
    $ORIGIN ..
    
    ;	Database file ..DB for . zone.
    ;	Do not edit this file!!!
    ;	Zone version 0
    ;
    @	 IN  SOA 22.33.44.55\. 	 root.somedomain.com. (
    		0 ; serial
    		3600 ; refresh
    		600 ; retry
    		86400 ; expire
    		3600 ; default_ttl
    		)
    
    ;
    ; Zone Records
    ;
    @ 	 IN NS 	22.33.44.55.
    @ 	 IN A 	22.33.44.55
    @ 	 IN NS  	.
    *.testdomain.com 	 IN A  	192.168.5.6
