    Hi guys, I modified my /etc/rndc.key and /etc/named.conf files. This is to close my opendns as what is shown in the dns report.

    After the changes I restarted the named by this command

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/named restart

    It shows:
    Stopping named: [ OK ]
    Starting named: [FAILED]

    I wonder why it fails to start so I tried another command which is

    service named restart

    and it shows

    Stopping named: [FAILED]
    Starting named: [FAILED]

    so I tried to start only the named by

    service named start

    It still shows FAILED.

    Anyone can help me how to start it again?

    I restore my back up just to start the named service. I think I miss something in the named.conf or rndc.key.

    Anyone can tell me how to close an opendns?

    You could try this


    /scripts/fixndc
    /scripts/rebuildnamedconf

    and restart named.
