    Problems with Mountain Lion Server (10.8.3)

    Hey guys, I'm running Mountain Lion Server (10.8.3.) on a Mac Mini. I'm having problems setting up a web server, and i think it might be DNS related. I'm still a novice when it comes to servers so bare with me. We have 2 Mac Mini servers at our school that we use for imaging and managing. One of our Mac Minis works fine, but it is using Lion Server. I tried to copy the DNS settings on it with adjustments for the different IP address. However, whenever I try to look up the website, Safari can't find the server. I tried nslookup in Terminal and I get a NXDOMAIN error. I also tried a dig command and it didn't give me an Answer Section. I can give you guys more info if needed. Like I said, I'm still a novice so it might be something simple i'm missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Have a try with 'sudo changeip -checkhostname' and see what comes up. If they don't match then it is a DNS/Host Name problem somewhere along the line.

    I got this reply "The DNS hostname is not available, please repair DNS and re-run this tool."

    I think i've got DNS setup correctly, but I might be missing something. Like I said in my previous post, I'm still a novice with servers.

    Hostname: myserver.mydomain.us

    Primary zone:
    mydomain.us (no zone transfers)
    machine: zone: mydomain.us Host Name: myserver IP: 192.168.x.x
    nameserver: myserver.mydomain.us (zone: mydomain.us)

    Reverse Zone: 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa (no zone transfers)
    reverse mapping: resolve IP 192.168.x.x to myserver.mydomain.us
    nameserver: myserver.mydomain.us (zone: 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa)

    Perform lookups for:
    all clients

    Forwarding Servers:
    our main server's IP address
