    Add this to the top of your /etc/named.conf

    key \"key\" {
    algorithm hmac-md5;
    secret \"XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\";
    };

    controls {
    inet 127.0.0.1 allow { any; } keys { \"key\"; };
    };

    server 127.0.0.1
    {
    keys { \"key\"; };
    };

    In /etc/rndc.conf there will be a line similar to the secret line above

    copy the secret line from it and replace the one above, restart bind and voila it works :)

    From the shell as root I\'d imagine...
    SSH in, and with root access you can run anything from within /script

    good luck.

    Same Problem Here.... /scripts/fixndc didn't work!

    We are getting the same error message, but when we run /scripts/fixndc from SSH root it says this:

    Found controls in named.conf ..
    Found key in (include) named.conf ..
    named.conf has already been fixed!

    We restart bind and we still get the following error:

    ndc: error: ctl_client: evConnect(fd 3): Connection refused ndc: error: cannot connect to command channel (/var/run/ndc)



    Here is what the top of our file looks like:

    // generated by named-bootconf.pl

    options {
    directory &/var/named&;
    /*
    * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
    * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
    * directive below. Previous versions of BIND always asked
    * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
    * port by default.
    */
    // query-source address * port 53;
    };

    //
    // a caching only nameserver config
    //
    zone &.& IN {
    type hint;
    file &named.ca&;
    };

    zone &localhost& IN {
    type master;
    file &localhost.zone&;
    allow-update { none; };
    };


    controls {
    inet * allow { any; } keys { &rndc-key&; };
    };

    include &/etc/rndc.key&;


    ## Domains ##
    zone &yourhostserver.com& IN {
    type master;
    file &yourhostserver.com.db&;
    };

    ## Domains ##


    There is nothing in the /etc/rndc.key file.
