Bind DNS Server seems to be limited to 50 hosts
Posted on 2004-11-01
I'm running a minimal install of redhat 9 with Bind 8 and webmin (for the customer) as a dns server. (times 2 in two locations)
Currently we have 50 domain names held here, but when I went to add number 51, this domain would not transfer to the slave DNS server, nor can I dig that domain..
I have tried increasing the maximum open files setting, the maximum data memory usage etc. etc. but with no result..
In the log files there is the following:-
Nov 1 14:14:42 ns1 named: zone example.com.au/IN: loading master file /var/named/example.com.au.hosts: unexpected end of input
Nov 2 12:03:20 ns1 named: dns_rdata_fromtext: /var/named/example.com.au.hosts:13: near eol: unexpected end of input
All existing domains are still working fine and I'm sure I've missed something simple.
