Got this error when trying to add a mail CNAME in Plesk DNS:
Error: There is incorrect combination of resource records in the zone
Found RackerHacker’s note about it and it was as he said, trying to add a new CNAME for mail. So I added the ‘test’ hostname instead as a CNAME to the host I wanted to use, then set about updating that in the psa DB.
One commenter suggested using phpmyadmin to make the changes to the dns_recs table in the psa database, but I didn’t have phpmyadmin setup for server wide usage.
So I just logged into mysql from the command line and did this:
mysql> select * from dns_recs;
to get the list of DNS records. Then I found the ID of the record I needed to change and did these 2 commands:
update dns_recs set host='mail.example.org' where id='XX' update dns_recs set displayHost='mail.example.org' where id='XX'
Change mail.example.org to your domain and ID to the record ID you found and that’s how to set a mail CNAME for a non-local host. Should be a simple task, yes…
