Hello,
Try to run /scripts/fixndc if that doesn't work run /scripts/updatenow then run /scripts/fixndc that should fix it.

It almost seems like MIME::Base64 might have some issues. Have you tried reinstalling that perl mod? Just a wild tangent.

/scripts/fixheaders


than install that module by hand
(via cpan is probably quickest)

manually installed http://updates.cpanel.net/pub/rpmup/redhat/7.1/x86/updates/glibc-devel-2.2.4-24.i386.rpm and that fixed the errors i was getting, now to see if that fixed the ndc reload problem (just installed that perl module)


Update; Nope, that didnt fix it

[email protected] [/]# ndc reload
ndc: connect failed: connection refused

Is this a machine slaved to a master nameserver box? If so, are you having trouble loading any sites on the slave (i.e., does their name resolution fail)? If so, I wouldn't worry about it. We get the connection refused messages quite a bit on the slaved machines, but it doesn't stop anything from working. The zones are still added to the master server, and everything works fine.

If this is a master server, is bind continually running through updates of existing zones? Are there any errors related to bind stopping/starting on the box?

this is a sole machine and the problem is bind is not updating zones, therefore alot of customers complaining of new accts not working, subdomains not working etc.

Nicks been unresponsive since i asked him a few weeks ago about the problem, i fixed 3 other servers with fixndc but this machine is the only one left

Ah, that stinks (the nonupdating). Any errors in /var/log/messages when you try to restart bind? Syntax errors, etc., in the named.conf perhaps? Anything?

More obvious stuff (sorry).

Perms on /var/named are at least 755 and user/group is named?
Perms on /etc/named.conf are at least 644 and user/group is root?
Are zones entries actually being added to /etc/named.conf or /var/named at all? Are they in the right format?
Both nameservers IPs for the server are listed in the show IP listing and both nameservers have valid zone files?
Run the named cleanup from WHM?
Is there an ndc in /var/run? Did you zap that and restart bind again (for & 9.x)?

More info-type stuff:
Server os? Bind version? WHM version?

FINALLY!

Thank you nick for your help today via email, he pointed out that the /etc/hosts file was not pointing to 127.0.0.1 rather the real ip of the server

For anyone that ever has such a problem in the future and are head banged, now you know what to look for!

and thanks Annette for the help

Hey, at least we have all the possibilities covered! Someone should write a manual. :)

Glad bind is back in shape for you.

I am having this problem. Can you clarify what you mean above? What does the hosts file need to look like?

127.0.0.1 localhost

or 127.0.0.1 servername

I don't understand what you mean by 'pointing'. thankS!

/etc/hosts should look something like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
xxx.xx.xx.xxx severname.domain.com servername

& 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

What's the localhost.localdomain bit needed for?

I just point it to localhost:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Is you server name the same as nameserver

I've seen this when you have a server name that is not one of the nameservers. CP doesn't seem to update properly then. Also, you might try turning of suexe and see it that corrects the problem. suexe creates all types of problems on cp
