    Hi Guys, my server has been running fine, last night i enabled advanced DNS in the default profile (this was around 11 pm)

    Then since around 2 a.m I've been receiving the following e-mails

    nameserver failed @ Thu Mar 27 09:23:56 2014. A restart was attempted automagically.

    Starting named: /etc/init.d/named: line 97: 18708 Aborted (core dumped) /usr/sbin/named-checkconf $ckcf_options ${named_conf} > /dev/null 2>&1

    Error in named configuration:
    /etc/named.conf:4: unknown key 'rndc-key'
    /etc/rndc.key:1: key '': bad key name
    /etc/rndc.key:1: key '': bad key name
    /etc/rndc.key:1: key '': bad key name
    mem.c:1246: REQUIRE(ctx->references == 1) failed, back trace

    [FAILED]



    Can anybody shed any light on this? also I cant login to the server, it says access denied, like a temporary block out, I have been blocked out a couple of times like this before, but after I wait a while, it usually lets me in.

    My websites seem to be working fine on my main IP but my additional IP addresses do not work, which makes me think I need to restart alias but i cant login at the moment ha-ha.

    also i tried to restore a site last night which is 8gb, but it did not go into the queue, this gave me an error, i do not know if this related.

    I have renamed /etc/named.conf file (file was corrupt) and regenerated that file.

    Restarted named and it came back online fine.

    Hello :)

    To note, the /etc/named.conf file is regenerated via:

    Code:
    /scripts/rebuilddnsconfig
    I am happy to see you were able to resolve the issue. Thank you for updating us with the outcome.

    Thank you.
