    Any error messages? It is really difficult to troubleshoot BIND/NAMED without any leads.

    I am having the same problem and only happened last night, maybe after update?
    this is the relevent portion:
    Aug 26 11:52:32 server named[15453]: starting BIND 9.2.4 -u named -t /var/named/chroot
    Aug 26 11:52:32 server named[15453]: using 2 CPUs
    Aug 26 11:52:32 server named[15455]: loading configuration: failure
    Aug 26 11:52:32 server named[15455]: exiting (due to fatal error)
    Aug 26 11:52:32 server named: named startup failed

    The config file is there and formatted properly so I am unsure why it is not starting right.

    EDIT: Fixed by updated the BIND libraries via YUM.

    Could you give us more information about what you were doing at the time it failed? Perhaps you modified named.conf a while back and did not restart until recently?

    Anyway, did you try the file rollback in the BACKUP area

    The solution :-

    Backup /etc/resolv.conf Very Happy

    Add to the top of resolv.conf the ip of a working nameserver, you used :-

    Code:
    nameserver <IP address?\>

    Save resolv.conf file.

    Then run command:
    up2date -u bind-libs

    If completes the update successfully run command as :
    service named restart

    With above my problem was fixed.
    Use at your own risk! :)
