Why am I getting this error?
Error reloading bind on dnserver3: rndc: 'reload' failed: not found

rndc reload works fine from the command line:
[email protected] [/scripts]# rndc
Usage: rndc [-c config] [-s server] [-p port]
[-k key-file ] [-y key] [-V] command

command is one of the following:

reload Reload configuration file and zones.
reload zone [class [view]]
Reload a single zone.
refresh zone [class [view]]
Schedule immediate maintenance for a zone.
reconfig Reload configuration file and new zones only.
stats Write server statistics to the statistics file.
querylog Toggle query logging.
dumpdb Dump cache(s) to the dump file (named_dump.db).
stop Save pending updates to master files and stop the server.
halt Stop the server without saving pending updates.
trace Increment debugging level by one.
trace level Change the debugging level.
notrace Set debugging level to 0.
flush Flushes all of the server's caches.
flush [view] Flushes the server's cache for a view.
status Display status of the server.
*restart Restart the server.

* == not yet implemented
Version: 9.2.4
[email protected] [/scripts]# rndc reload

When I restart bind from the WHM I get:

Ok, I tried running that script, but it didnt work.

When i ran it i got no output from it, not sure if thats right?

I've seen a few people round the net with the same problem, but none seem to of found the answer.

Thanks

Cpanel was out before there was a kernel version 2.6 and dns worked ok.

Surely you must have changed something?

Ben, arent you cpanel support?

Sure you can give more info than submit a support ticket, what is the first thing cpanel support would do when they got my ticket?

Go on, have a guess
If you're being advised to log a ticket, that is what you should do so that they can help with your problem. If you purchased the license through a 3rd party you can have them log the ticket on your behalf if you prefer.

Not to be smart, but the first thing they would do is log into the server to get a better sense of the circumstances of the issue. The reason that I recommend opening a support ticket immediately is because I would consider this to be a fairly significant issue that should be resolved as quickly as possible. Now we could go through the troubleshooting process here in the forums, relying completely on your ability to answer my questions as accurately as possible. However, that process may take days to complete, whereas if one of our techs had access to your server, then the process may only take moments and at worst, hours.

In this type of situation where what I would consider to be the most apparent cause of your issue does not provide a resolution to the problem, then I like to see a support ticket opened immediately. However in hindsight, I forgot to ask a key question:

Is dnsserver3 the same server where rndc from the command line works? That would seem to be the case from your posted prompt, but you never truly know ... unless you're actually sitting on the command prompt yourself.

In my experience, failure to execute rndc through the WHM or cPanel while it works from the command line is usually a futexes problem, especially since you're using a 2.4 kernel. But I can't say for sure unless I can strace some of the offending processes.

On a side note, I really hate to see customers suffering through an issue, pleading for help from other users, while our support techs sit idle. cPanel comes with very liberal support (read we often accept tickets from people who we technically don't support). What would be awesome is if someone has an issue, asks for help here, unfortunately doesn't receive a working answer in a few hours (or days for minor issues), opens a support ticket with cPanel, gets their issue resolved, and then ... reports what the deal was back to the same forum thread. Now that would be very cool.

I fixed the same problem by doing away with the in view and external views within /etc/named.conf.

I reverted back to the old style.
