- Plesk for Windows
Unable to add an IP address without a subnet mask at Domains > example.com > DNS Settings > Zone Transfers. The following error appears in Plesk:
PLESK_ERROR: '203.0.113.2' does not appear to be a valid IP address or it belongs to a wrong type.
BIND DNS server is selected as a DNS server at Plesk > Tools & Settings > Server Components > DNS Server.
This is a Plesk bug with ID PPPM-7892, which is planned to be fixed in future product updates.
As a workaround, add the IP address via a command-line interface:
Connect to the Plesk server via RDP.
Start a command prompt as an Administrator and run the command below:
C:\> plesk bin dns -a example.com -axfr 203.0.113.2
SUCCESS: Creation of DNS record in Domain 'example.com' complete.
- example.com - a domain name
- 203.0.113.2 - an IP address of a DNS server allowed to receive a copy of the DNS zone
