VPS & Dedicated Servers (Hosting Control Center) Help

Why is my Parallels Plesk Panel name server not listed in the Parallels Plesk Panel Services Monitor?

Symptoms:

  • Parallels Plesk Panel name server is not listed in the Parallels Plesk Panel Services Monitor.
  • You have loaded a domain into Parallels Plesk Panel for hosting, but the server is not serving DNS for the domain.

Cause:

If you provisioned or reprovisioned your Dedicated Windows Parallels Plesk Panel 8.1 server prior to March 8, 2007, Parallels Plesk Panel may not be configured to use the Bind DNS service.

Resolution:

From a command prompt, run this command:

"C:Program FilesSWsoftPleskadminbindefpackagemng.exe" --set --type=dnsserver --default=bind

This will enable Bind, import zones from your existing domains, and allow Parallels Plesk Panel to control the Bind DNS server.
