I have two WHM/cPanel servers running bind as the dns server and functioning as web and dns server.

Looking at the file /etc/named.conf I notice the older server has all domains in internal view and external view. (duplicated in both internal and external views section)

On the new server I notice domains are in the internal view section only of /etc/named.conf

Both seem to report fine testing with intodns.com but I'm wondering which is correct.

Thanks very much for checking on an example install for me and for the solution.

Yes, moving /etc/named.conf to named.conf.backup and then running /scripts/rebuilddnsconfig fixed it, recreating a new named.conf file with the authoritative domains in both the internal and external view sections.

Thanks!
