    After an upgrade to Centos 3.4 DNS seams to be having problems. Named will restart but not do much of anything else. I have tried
    /scripts/upcp --force
    /scripts/fixndc
    but still having problems. Tried to add an A entry to hostname and got error
    "IP= Bind reloading on alpha using rndc zone: [biswh.com] Error reloading bind on alpha: rndc: 'reload' failed: not found Add Complete"

    Any help appreciated

    Got it

    Moved in a backup of named.conf and it is working fine. The named.conf file after the rebuild did not contain any of the domain entries?

    That happens on fresh installs sometimes. /scripts/rebuildnamedconf is your friend in those instances.

    See this thread on WHT:

    In short, if you have caching-nameserver package installed, and you serve dns off the machine, you shouldn't have it installed in the first place. For those not on 3.4 yet, if you have this package, back up your named.conf ( and all else related ) remove caching-nameserver or just add it to your exclude list. But you really shouldn't have it installed in the first place if you are serving dns.

    Edit: Forgot, the centos team have removed the package from the update for the time being, but it might not be removed on all mirrors.
