    More information would be needed.

    What OS? New install or ongoing problem? What does "rndc status" return from the command line?

    Run the following commands at the prompt line:

    /scripts/fixnamed
    /scripts/fixndc
    /scripts/restartsrv named

    No Cpanel installed,so can't run:
    /scripts/fixnamed
    /scripts/fixndc
    /scripts/restartsrv named

    I have a redhat with bind 9.2.1.The DNS working fine since the fisrt time config the server.But I just found the problem without any anticipation.

    Go on, have a guess
    If cPanel isn't installed, then you're asking in the wrong forums.

    If it's a new server that you're about to install cPanel on, then all you need from a DNS perspective is a valid DNS resolver listed in /etc/resolv.conf
