    Hello :)

    You can try rebuilding your /etc/named.conf file via:

    Code:
    mv /etc/named.conf /etc/named.conf.backup1
    /scripts/rebuilddnsconfig
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    It doesn't work:

    /scripts/rebuilddnsconfig
    Waiting for “named” to restart ………warn [restartsrv_base] The 'named' service's P ID file '/var/run/named/named.pid' did not appear after 10 seconds.


    …failed.

    Service Error
    The “named” service failed to start.

    Startup Log
    Starting named: [ OK ]

    named has failed. Contact your system administrator if the service does not automagically recover.
    Copying /etc/rndc.key to /var/named/chroot/etc/rndc.key
    /etc/rndc.key already exists in chroot environment.
    Including rndc key file to named.conf
    Adding controls clause

    What's output to /var/log/messages when Named fails to start?

    Thank you.
