Attempting to locate /etc/named.conf no bind configuration present

I keep getting that on a brand new server. Everything else went well but the DNS server won't load because of it and I can't create my domain accounts for the same reasons.

I checked and indeed the named.conf is not there.

I tried fixes suggested on other forums like
/scripts/rebuildnamedconf

But it does nothing and when I restart Bind DNS server I get that :
named has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "named is not running").

I really don't know what to do since this bug comes out of nowhere. I had no issues during the config of my server and never had this problem on my other server with a similar setup.

Any help would be appreciated.

WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.2-R119
CentOS 4.3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

Also when I try some of the multiple fix scripts I get that:

[email protected] [/etc]# /scripts/fixrndc
[DNSLib]: Attempting to locate /etc/named.conf
[DNSLib]: no bind configuration present
[DNSLib]: Attempting to locate /etc/named.conf
[DNSLib]: no bind configuration present
[DNSLib]: Unable to locate either rndc or ndc. Please check Bind installation.

Is there a way to force Bind's clean reinstallation?

Here is the fix:

up2date -u bind

For some reason there was no bind files on the system so I had to DL it and then run the fix scripts.

Everything now works.

Thats a bizarre fault - We are running exactly the same setup as you on multiple boxes, and have never had this probem during build.

Did you perform a logged install of Cpanel? It would be interesting to see if the BIND install bummed out at some point.

On a slight side-note, we prefer yum to up2date on our Centos systems :)

Cpanel was installed by a hivelocity.net technician so I don't know what he did. I did the 1st time configuration part and didn't encounter issues.

I had exactly the same setup before on another server @hivelocit and didnt have this problem which is why I didn't understand how it happened. But eitherway its fixed now and running smoothly.

So if it happends to anyone, you know what to try now :)
