    When I try to create a domain I got this error:

    Account Creation Status: failed (Sorry, a DNS entry for domain.com already exists, please delete it first (from all servers in the dns cluster) )
    Sorry, a DNS entry for domain.com already exists, please delete it first (from all servers in the dns cluster)

    I have checked at /var/named/domain.com.db but there is nothing there!!

    Where I should look for?? Cause I cant find the dns zone of this site!

    Thank you!

    Have you setup a DNS clustering on your servers? If yes, the DNS zone file should be present on the clustering servers and you will have to remove the .db file and the entry from the named.conf file.

    If you haven't setup a DNS cluster, make sure the .db file is removed

    and the domain name entry is removed from the configuration file

    Make sure the DNS entry of the domain is removed from all the clustering servers and restarted the named service.

    I´ve checked both folders and files and there is nothing there regarding the domain Im looking for.

    When I try to create it through WHM says that a dns zone already exists for that domain but there is no zone!! :eek:

    Hope you can help me

    Remove /etc/named.conf.cache and you will be able to create DNS zone file.
