today when I logged in the Server Control Panel I was welcomed with the following warning: A storage optimization is necessary. This process can be started under "Media".
What is Storage Optimization? Is it a safe process?
today I found my server started with uptime 1 hour 30 minutes, while I am sure it was shut down days ago.
Should I be worried or the server powers on automatically after a certain period of time?
Goodmorning to everybody,
I would like to change the hostname of my root server with 'ubuntu-18.04' instead of 'v3303002220685104720' .
Since I purchased a domain (say fireworks.com), my fqdn would be ubuntu-18.04.fireworks.com
Am I also required to change accordingly the rDNS of the IPv4 in the Network section of the Server Control Panel?
Goodmorning to all of you,
While I was editing my DNS zone, I realized that only 9 DNS records are accepted. However I need 10 of them.
Why is it not possible to create more than 9 records?
Do you have the same restraint or the limit of records can be somehow extended?
I think my server is already configured to use an IPv6 adress, as indicated by my netplan configuration:Code
- root@XXX:/etc/netplan# cat ./50-cloud-init.yaml
- version: 2
- renderer: networkd
- - 188.8.131.52/22
- - 3a03:3000:30:66:2244:fall:le96:5012/64
- gateway4: X.XXX.XXX.X
- gateway6: le60::1
- macaddress: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
- - XX.XX.XXX.XXX
- - XX.XX.XX.XXX
- - XXXX:XXXX:X:X::XXXX
Is my server's IPv6 address 3a03:3000:30:66:2244:fall:le96:5012?
In my control panel, my IPv6 addresses are: 3a03:3000:30:66::/64
NOTE: I avoided to use my real IP addresses
My Linux distribution is Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
I apologize but I am not familiar with IPv6 addresses: why I have more than one IPv6 address?
So if I pick one address of the indicated subnet, I suppose have to add this address in /etc/hosts: is that the only configuration I am required to do on my server side? I wonder if I can omit my IPv6 address in my DNS zone.
I am struggling to create a valid dns zone.
When I added 2 A records for hosts @ and * using as destination my IPv6 address (as suggested me in a previous thread), that address, which is in the form 3a03:3000:30:66::/64, was rejected with the following warning:
Entry invalid: * AAAA 0 3a03:3000:30:66::/64 No valid IPv6 address specified. Entry invalid: @ AAAA 0 3a03:3000:30:66::/64 No valid IPv6 address specified.
Why is that? Where is the mistake?
NOTE: I did not want to report my true IPv6 address, so I changed some numbers
Then, as far as the DKIM record for mail._domainkey.example.com is concerned, the host is only mail.domainkey?
And the SPF record for example.com should have as host the special character @?
Good morning to everybody.
I need to add DKIM, SPF, TXT and DMARK records to my DNS zone.
I am required to do this in order to send transactional emails via sendinblue from my web application.
For instance, my DMARC record for "_dmarc.example.com" is:
v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; rua=mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org!10m; ruf=mailto:email@example.com!10m; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
Could you please suggest me how to do it?
The DNS zone has 4 sections: Host, Type, MX and Destination.
As far as I have understood, these sections has to be filled in as follows:
Destination: v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; rua=mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org!10m; ruf=mailto:email@example.com!10m; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
Is that correct?
Thank you for your quick replies.
I will not use my server as a mail server, so would you suggest me to delete also the mx record?
One last question: the AAAA record(s) should have as host *, @ or both?
I have just purchased a root server RS 1000 G8 and a domain, so I am new to NetCup and to this forum.
Now I would like to link my domain to my server.
I noticed that in my DNS zone there are 4 type A records, respectively for *, @, ftp and mail hosts, which have as destination an IP address that does not correspond to my server address.
My question is: am I expected to change this address to the value of my server's Ipv4 address?
