I have trouble setting up the nameserver and rndc to work. Could anyone give me example how i set them up correctly? If you can, please give me an example on both the named.conf and rndc.conf files.

thanks a million!!

The optimal setup of named for a cpanel machine is installed after you have layer1 and layer2 in place, and then &Enable Nameserver& from your WebhostManager....

basically, let cpanel create those config files if you are going to use the nameserver within cpanel.

There are plenty of threads about a few of the pitfalls of bind 9 with RH 7.2, if you do a search on this forum you will find.

I tried to do that.. but nothing happens to the configuration files.. the nameserver wont start..

I tried to browse through the threads.. i found nothing related to just my problem. The configuration files will not work together.

I know how to configure a simple bind with named.conf, but i do not know how the rndc works in relation to named.conf and vice versa..

What version of redhat are you running ?

Also how many ips are on the server?

Runnin Red Hat version 7.1

There is 15 ips added.. first ip is on a diffrent net that the others.

That is not what the problem is, it did not work before we added the other ips as well.

I am sure it has something to do with the configuration files.. But as no one ever is going to show me a few examples, neither does burstnet answer their support emails, i guess this never is going to be resolved :(
