Hello,

I'm using DirectAdmin 1.60.4 with Evolution Skin (Icons Grid layout).
When I use the Office 365 MX template for generating the DNS-records, there are some errors.

To reproduce:
MX Records > select Office 365 > Save.
Then go to DNS Management.Click edit CNAME lyncdiscover webdir.online.lync.com.
Click in the field Value and you 'll see the error: Invalid DNS value.
The error is a space after the value.

You can remove the space after the value and than click on Edit to correct it.

Exact the same happens with the record SRV _sip._tls 1 100 443 sipdir.online.lync.com.
There is a space after the value and you have to remove the space.

My DNS servers did not accept the DNS records because this errors.

Kind regards,

Copra

You're correct. We use enhanced skin so we can't change records. But on editting the domain.com.db file there is indeed a space behind it.

Exact the same happens with the record SRV _sip._tls 1 100 443 sipdir.online.lync.com.

I got multiple spaces behind this one.

My nameservers (locally) however did accept the records for some reason.

It seems a bug in the Evolution skin. Do you know where I can report a bug?

No it's not as I also have spaces in the records using the Enhanced skin.
However in the Evolution skin it's worse because the records are not accepted there.

Bot it happens in at least these both skinds.

We can ask @smtalk to have a lookt at this or it's also possible to send in a ticket to report a bug.
