Hello,

We had a problem with DNS not resolving to our new server for four days.

In the end, on a whim, I commented this line from /etc/named.conf

Code:
allow-query     { localhost; };
Only because it looked like that would only allow queries for localhost.

After I did that, everything started to resolve.

Is this the usual setting? I have never had this problem before, so it was very bizarre.

Hello :)

That is not a standard entry in the /etc/named.conf file. You can regenerate a default /etc/named.conf file in the future with a command such as:

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